Description by OLDIES.com:
The world’s most famous vampire is naturally hard to kill. Over and over, Bram Stoker’s Dracula has been adapted for the screen, with widely varying degrees of accuracy and success. Interpretations have ranged from cadaverous and creepy (Max Schreck in Nosferatu, 1922) to elegant (Lugosi and his imitators) to bizarre (Gary Oldman in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, 1992). But has Stoker’s vampire ever been portrayed as the author intended? Here is the updated edition of Lyndon Joslin’s acclaimed 1999 guide to the films based on Stoker’s novel. Covered in detail for the first time are Drakula Istanbul’da (1953); Dracula (1969); Dracula 2000 (2000); Dracula’s Curse (2002); and Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary (2003). Also new to this edition is complete cast and credit information for the Dracula series films from Universal and Hammer as well as for the “Shadows of Stoker” films-i.e., those that clearly borrow from Stoker without citing the source. With photographs, bibliography, and index.
