v! Count Dracula Has Macabre History - Still Most Undead, Monster y 1 Survived Author, Bela Lugosi BY PHILIP K. SCIIEUER Who is the most undead of macabre fiction characters? In any accounting, Count Dracula must ha h well up there In the lead. The reflection is prompt- " 4l4J vr 4-lf fifmUi TfTnjI A a.!.-...-.! TT! 1 - . . tvi ujr M, ujr iuil&uxiiu S A11U1UHV XlinCLS 01 tt : S u H A L "The Brides of Dracula'- in which the old boy him- self Is NOT resurrected again. In this latest version, : which has been showing around town, a couple of "disciples" carry on in the best tradition of Bram Stoker's original monster. 1 - Stoker created him in 1897. Bela Lugosi played him on Broadway In the early 30s. In 1932, in fact, P r.Lt,...: ' le iaie can Laemmie L. BelaLvgost , brought Lugosi to Uni- versa! City and Introduced him to the moviegoing l' millions In "Dracula." It made a star of Bela. - Four 5. years later, the cjamor for more of this male vam. f pire resulted In 'Dracula's Daughter'-j-despite the f fact that he had disintegrated In "everlasting death" ; In 1932. This time he took on the unmistakable, al- though disguised, features of Otto Kruger. : f In 1944, the count stilt an exclusive Universal f propertyturned up by proxy In the person of a jun-f lor offspring Lon Chaney Jr. in "The Son of Dracu--i ; la." At the finish sonny boy was killed off "for 1 good." But the following year pop was given a new p lease' on life, by John Carradine, In the improbable j but inevitable company of the Frankenstein monster r; and the Wolf Man. This synthesis of freaks was en- titled "The House of Frankenstein," and it led to a VI reunion of the same unholy three, In 1946, in "The $ House of Dracula." "So They Played Him for Laughs Then; in 194S, somebody at Universal got the idea tnai uiese goony Diras snoua oe piayed ior laughs-intentional laughs, that is. The result was "Abbott jp'and Costello Meet Frankenstein" and who should ? appear In the refleshed skeleton of the Trans'ylvanian . I count but the late old master himself, Lugosi!, . U After that, Dracula was allowed to requiescat in . T. pace for a whole decade. It was in 1958 that Hinds t - and the enterprising British shocker factory called & Hammer Fjlms gave him a new shot in the jaw. There he was, as embodied by Christopher Lee and 'lhi color, yet. At.the close of .this one "Horror of f Dracula" the same old stake was driven through . . the same bid dastardly heart and the no-account ' count crumbled to dust before our relieved eyes. 4 j, '. Indeed,-he was so plainly dead-dead that Hinds $ kept him that way in this latest "Brides of, Dracula." I - The only character surviving from the previous' film i and the book was Prof. Van Helsing (played by ,i Peter Cushing). - " The old carnivore had had his last drink of warm, bloody his last jug of the jugular. So said Hinds. Drac, Universal and I know better. .:: Bronston Discovers l Cid's Spain ' ' A picture will finally be made in Spain about Spain by Americans. Producer Samuel Bronston, writer Philip Yordan and director Anthony Mann have ui signed the papers necessary to their collaboration on ' ' "El Cid," story of the nation's greatest Christian hero. This will go before the cameras immediately , following completion of the Bronston-Yordan-Nicho-' l las Ray "King of Kings." " Frank Woods, maker of "Angel Baby," reports "Is-' "r land Affair" as his next Indie Samoa location. In his cast will be Sir Ralph Richardson and Kim Ham- -Uton. ; Choosy William Holden has indicated a will- - -ingness to read the script, Woods says.
