When I think of Count Dracula it’s hard to shake the hypnotic image of Bela Lugosi as the famous vampire. Decades of vampire costumes seem to be based on this iconic depiction. Though Nosferatu was the first film to bring Bram Stoker’s mysterious character to life, the Hollywood debut of Dracula hit the big screen in 1931.
Most people don’t realize that Vlad didn’t actually enjoy impaling anything. Except marshmallows. On a moonless night.
