Bela Lugosi and Helen Chandler, Dracula (1931)
One of my favorite old horror movies is undoubtedly Dracula (1931). Everything about this movie is just deliciously old horror school greatness. Many today wouldn’t even categorize this one as horror compared to the ones they’ve grown up on but can you imagine how scary this was when it was released?! There’s no doubt in my mind Bela’s Dracula starred in a LOT of nightmares. Of all the old Hollywood monsters, Dracula is easily the scariest in my opinion.
You simply CANNOT trust him OR his dentally magnificent smile!
This was actually the first film I ever saw Helen Chandler in (when watching this in the 70s as a child) and I have loved her since. Beautiful face and loads of talent and onscreen charm.
