Trivia The cape worn by Christopher Lee was discovered in 2007 in a London costume shop during its annual inventory-taking. It had been missing for thirty years and is believed to be worth around $50,000. Lee was contacted to verify its authenticity. See more »
Goofs When Harker is in the cellar to kill Dracula, he sees Dracula in his coffin and the girl in hers. Any sensible person would have killed Dracula first, then the girl, but not Harker. Obviously, it would have been a short film if he had, but the writer could have given the audience a reason for that. Instead, it just makes Harker look like a fool. See more »
