Did You Know?

Several plot elements of this adaptation were also present in the Hammer Films / Terrence Fisher version with Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing, Dracula (1958 film). This includes Jonathan Harker being killed at the castle, becoming a vampire and being killed by a friend (in this case, Arthur Holmwood rather than Van Helsing); the interior of Castle Dracula looking too "new" with wood paneling, more like a mansion than a castle; Arthur Holmwood being the main character who goes with Van Helsing to destroy Lucy, to follow the trail of a coffin from one place to another; then to Castle Dracula itself; and Van Helsing tearing down curtains to let in sunlight at the climax. In effect, it appears Dan Matheson's adaptation used Jimmy Sangster's 1958 version as a starting point, then worked his way back toward Bram Stoker's novel. While the most authentic version most American had seen at the time, both the Jess Franco and BBC versions were far closer to the book, especially the latter.See more »
Revealing mistakes: When Dracula flips over Lucy's coffin, the supposedly dead actress inside can clearly be seen to quickly raise her arms to cover her chest and face, presumably to shield herself from the fall.See more »

Great Dracula Movie, 26 July 2004
Author: riotrr from United States

I've watched this version of Dracula many times and each time I watch it I'm reminded again of how good it is. This is one of my favorite Dracula movies ever.

Made for television in the early 1970s, it's still capable of keeping me interested and still gives me a few chills.

Great acting abounds in this film. Nigel Davenport makes a very convincing Van Helsing. The talented Fiona Lewis is excellent as Lucy. Jack Palance is wonderful as Dracula. He is probably the most physically imposing Dracula ever. His Dracula doesn't shrink away and hide from those that might oppose him like many portrayals of Dracula seem to do. Jack's Dracula will confront his enemies with vicious super-human strength, often destroying them in the confrontations. I really like this physically dominating Dracula. He's a great physical danger to others as well as a spiritual one!

All in all, this is a great movie and I highly recommend it. 9 out of 10!
