If you haven't gotten a chance, pick up this fascinating read.  It dispells a lot of myths and controversies surrounding the film.  As many have said before, Gary D. Rhodes takes a scholar's pen to researching and unearthing long forgotten information; shedding new light on Tod Browning and the making of DRACULA.  Worth every penny and was released 84 years ago this very weekend.

Thank you for the tip. Always looking for a good read and on a "classic" film to boot.  Putting it on my "to do" list.

It's definately a good read.  The following is reproduced here with permission from SIGHT & SOUND MAGAZINE; February issue.

As for the surreal setting....that's what the movie is for.  ;)

Y'know, the only "myth" about the movie I've ever heard was that Lugosi at the time couldn't speak any English, and he learned all his lies by "rote".  Which actually all sounds pretty remarkable.  But I was later informed it was all "urban legend".
