Bela Lugosi’s portrayal of Dracula in Universal’s 1931 horror movie of the same name became the immortal cinematic image of the vampire. The combination of eerie charisma and brooding evil has chilled the blood of countless movie fans, creating a compelling classic monster that shaped our nightmares.
Although Dracula did not appear with the frequency of his stablemate the Frankenstein Monster, the original movie’s legacy would prove to be an interesting one. 1936 saw Gloria Holden as Countess Marya Zaleska, battling with her legacy in Dracula’s Daughter, while 1943’s Son of Dracula handed the mantle to Lon Chaney Jr for a brutal tale of immortality and deception. As the monster rallies of the mid-1940s brought Universal’s fiends together, it was John Carradine’s turn to threaten the good folks of mittelEurope, with things coming full circle as Lugosi reprised the role just once on film for a 1948 face-off with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello.
