Goofs

When the police came upon the mayhem at Carfax Abbey (caused in Dracula) in the first scene, where were the primary witnesses, Mr. and Mrs. Harker? Their names would certainly have come up at some point while Dr. Von/Van Helsing was being booked and the crime scene was being examined. Furthermore, their suspicious departure from the scene should cause them to be regarded as fugitives and suspects. Yet they are never mentioned in this movie. See more »

Quotes

Countess Marya Zaleska: Her pulse is weak Dr. Garth... Growing weaker. All your skill can't help her now. She's under a spell that can be broken only by me... or death.

Lesbian undertones?
11 August 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Did "Dracula" need a sequel? That's debatable, but "Dracula's Daughter" was worth seeing. Picking up where the original left off, Prof. Van Helsing (Edward Van Sloan) is arrested for murdering Dracula. (Those ingrates! He gets rid of an evil force and this is how they repay him?!) Anyway, Countess Marya Zaleska (Gloria Holden) turns up and we learn that she is the Count's daughter. By which I mean that she inherited her father's taste for blood. And her assistant Sandor (Irving Pichel) keeps her addicted to being a vampire.

One thing that I now have to wonder is whether or not they were implying that Marya might have been a lesbian, the way that she comes on to women. Obviously they couldn't talk openly about it back then, but you know...occasionally they look for ways to push the limits. Anyway, "Dracula's Daughter" is worth seeing if there's nothing else to do.
