A master gunfighter teams up with a banjo-playing drifter and a Mexican tramp to foil the town leaders of Daugherty, Texas, who want to steal $100,000 from their own bank to buy land that the approaching railroad will cross.
Lee Van Cleef,
Attempting to cash in on the name recognition of Young Frankenstein, Vampira was renamed "Old Dracula" for North American release. The two films were shown back-to-back as a double bill in many locations. See more »
When Dracula is attempting to gain entrance to his hotel room via the window, you can see that its pitch black behind him. however, the very next scene shows that its almost daylight outside. See more »
David Niven has a role that is clearly beneath his stature (in his first scene, he is reading a Playboy magazine), and Clive Donner's direction is almost embarrassingly crude (the dreadful copy I saw made it look even worse than it is, but it's crude nonetheless). Still, the movie has some unexpectedly clever lines (Dracula's assistant to his master: "I cross my fingers, sir" - Dracula's response: "I'd rather you didn't"), and (don't crucify me for this) I really found it more enjoyable than Polanski's overrated "Fearless Vampire Killers" - mainly because it has no pretensions of greatness.
