Interesting, but not true to the Stoker novel
19 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After searching for this title for some time, I finally located a complete copy of this rare and obscure BBC Mystery and Imagination presentation. This episode ran in the UK in 1968. Starring the late Denholm Elliott as Count Dracula, this version of the classic vampire story is not true to the original novel. Much license was taken, probably to get the story into an 80 minute broadcast length. I won't go into plot details so as not to spoil it for any future viewer, but I will say that those who prefer versions true to the original novel will be disappointed with this production. I found it enjoyable myself, but no Christopher Lee style Dracula here. Denholm Elliott's version of the Count is that of a suave, gentleman traveler. Quite interesting to see a young Denholm Elliott in a role very different from the vast majority of his other works. For Dracula aficionados this will be an enjoyable and interesting take on the classic story if you can tolerate the heavy license in regard to plot changes. Supporting cast is very good, including Corin Redgrave as Jonathan Harker. I'm giving it a 6 out of 10 primarily due to the substantial plot changes, some of which make the story a bit confusing to those who know the original novel. However, I can recommend this definite rarity from 60s British television as being worth a look.
