The film was originally not going to feature Dracula at all, much like The Brides of Dracula (1960), due to Christopher Lee becoming increasingly reluctant to reprise the role and the producers not expecting to be able to convince him to do so. Lee's increasing salary demands were also a factor. Ralph bates would have played the lead. The script was rewritten to include Dracula after the producers were finally able to coax Lee back to the role after Warner-Seven Arts refused to back the film without the actor's participation.
