Saturday Night at the Movies 11/15/14!

Who cares what picture we see?

Virgina Vincent most likely would, and I will I check to see for sure, let's make tonight's choice this one...

A valiant effort at a creepfest, this gives classical actor Francis Lederer - pushing 60 at the time - a fine role as the Count - though an attempt at a Romanian accent might have been nice. Lederer is a pretty amazing guy - he lived the ENTIRE 20th Century - born November 6, 1899 and living a long and full life through May 25, 2000, when he passed away at the age of 100. (!) And he was still giving acting seminars in those last months of his life. Truly incredible.

This movie cycles between being a pretty cool scarepic and a 50's sitcom - not that it's funny - but the filming style and flat lighting in some scenes make it look visually like a sitcom of the period. Still, it's a Dracula movie - and it's in the video vault on a fine MGM DVD - so we can check this one out anytime - even tonight - if you feel like coming over to watch it with me!

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
