An original featurette was made to promote Hammer Film’s Dracula AD 1972 with Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. The video features behind the scenes footage and film of Christopher Lee at home with his family. The Christopher Lee interview is fairly ridiculous with Lee adamant that Vlad Tepes – the historical inspiration for Dracula – did exist – a fact that I was unaware was in doubt. Anyway, it’s a great look at Hammer marketing from the 1970s.
