WORLD'S FIRST DRACULA FILM
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first Dracula film?
There have been several Dracula
films created based on the Abraham ("Bram") Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula.
However, if you are a movie buff and enjoy first creations then you will have to
see the Dracula movie created in 1931. This was the first Dracula movie ever
created in English.
This movie was directed by Tod Browning, the star
of course was none other than Bela Lugosi. The screenplay was written by Garrett
Fort and was close to the stage play by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston
than the book of Stoker.
However, the name may not be Dracula, but the first
film based on the novel by the Abraham ("Bram") Stoker's was an early German
silent film by the name of Nosferatu: A Symphony in Terror in 1922. This film
was directed by expressionist F. W. Murnau. The star of this film was Max
Schreck, which named Dracula Graf Orlock. However, with the release in England
it was called Dracula.
Many of the scenes in the film with Bela Lugosi
were censored such as a gigantic bug emerging from a coffin, the sight of three
of Dracula’s wives appearing in the castle in a zombie like state, and Renfields
scene begging Dracula to allow him to eat spiders and flies.
