"Son Of Dracula" (1943)


Recommended Posts

Last night on METv's Svengoolie was 1943's Son Of Dracula:

 


 

As with most movies, Son Of Dracula has its good points and its bad points (Lon Chaney as Count Dracula?!?). And, as a viewer, one simply hopes that the former outweighs the latter. In this one, they do.

 

To me, the primary good point in this one is its ending. Once Frank Stanley (Robert Paige) has defeated Count Dracula, he returns to playroom at Dark Oaks after sunrise, opens the coffin of his now undead lover, Kay Caldwell (Louise Allbritton), and, after gazing upon her features one last time, takes off his ring and places it upon her left ring finger as a sign of his continuing love for her before setting her and her coffin on fire. Not the usual "hero saves heroine" Hollywood ending.
