Elizabeth Allan and Lionel Barrymore
If there’s one thing you can be certain of, if Ethel or Lionel Barrymore is in a movie, I will watch it and watch it and watch it again and again. I feel they were in a league of their own making and can’t get enough of either of them. Naturally, this time of year, I revisit one of my favorite classic “horror” films, Mark of the Vampire.
Lionel Barrymore is, as always, perfectly wonderful in this film and draws you in to each and every scene he’s in…. creepy surroundings or not, you have to go where he leads you.
If you’ve never seen this particular film, I hope you’ll check it out really soon. It is incredibly unique and it’s one of those films you find yourself thinking (and talking) about for days upon end!
You can watch Mark of the Vampire on Prime Video (Amazon link).
