Count the "Counts"...

Recommended Posts

 

In the "TCM not doing right..." thread, there were several mentions of a personality on METV called "Svengoolie". I noticed this guy was promoting a showing of a "Dracula" movie that features JOHN CARRADINE as the Count.

 

 

It got me to thinking: How many different actors played Count Dracula in the movies? I'll even allow the inclusion of that hinky looking bald guy in *Nosferatu* . Without relying on Wiki, and just off the top of my head, I can come up with...

 

 

BELA LUGOSI

LON CHANEY

FRANK LANGELLA

LOUIS JOURDAN

CHRISTOPHER LEE

GARY OLDMAN

GEORGE HAMILTON

and now, JOHN CARRADINE

 

 

I'm sure there's a whole boatload I'm not aware of. Who can anyone add?

Forgot about a couple of those. Thanks for the reminder.

 

 

!974 the year of Dracula? Maybe. Seems there was a fascination with vampires way BEFORE the "TWILIGHT" nonsense.
