Inktober 2018. #21 The prompt was 'drain'. Vampires drain... Son of Dracula 1943. Directed by Robert Siodmak – his first film for Universal Studios – with a screenplay based on an original story by his brother Curt Siodmak. Count Alucard (hah!) as played by Lon Chaney Jr., makes his way from Budapest to the swamps of the Deep South to strike a deal with Katherine Caldwell (Louise Allbritton). I really enjoy this movie -except for Lon Chaney Jr. That said, I just never thought he played Dracula (or a distant relative, possibly) of the venerable Count from Transylvania. I've always wondered how it would have played with Lugosi as the lead Still, it's got some great moments in the script. Particularly Adeline De Walt Reynolds as Madame Queen Zimba. I love Katherine's double cross and of course, the almost film noir ending.11 x 17 on paper and inked with a Rafael series No. 8404 sable brush.

I have been watching the Dracula Legacy Collection and I have a serious vampire related question. When Dracula turns into a bat, what happens to his tuxedo I mean, you got this guy dressed to the 9s then he turns into an animal one tenth his size and he flies away only to reform into a person in some lady's bedroom and BAM he is fully dressed again.
Is the whole evening wear thing just a hypnotic illusion and Drac is always just running around with his Vlad the impaler out and we just cant see it cause we are under his spell
I'm putting too much thought into this stuff again, arent I

Rapple Records was a one-time record label joint venture between RCA and Apple, created to release the Son of Dracula soundtrack album. RCA didn't want Dad appearing on the Beatles' Apple Records, even though Apple Films released the movie. This label design, featuring RCA's mascot Nipper dressed up as a vampire and taking a bite out of the apple, is adorable. The album itself, full of Nilsson gems and Paul Buckmaster's score, is rad. #harrynilsson #sonofdracula #1974 #ringostarr #paulbuckmaster #rapple #biteit
“You are very brilliant, aren't you, Professor Lazlo Perhaps too brilliant for your own good... and that of Dr. Brewster. You're right. I am here because this is a young and virile race, not dry and decadent like ours. They have what I want, what I need, what I must have. Do you suppose that I would allow any mortal to stand in my way” #dracula #alucard #sonofdracula #halloween #october #universalmonsters

Hungarian Count Alucard, a mysterious stranger, arrives in the U.S. invited by Katherine Caldwell, one of the daughters of New Orleans plantation owner Colonel Caldwell. Shortly after his arrival, the Colonel dies of apparent heart failure and leaves his wealth to his two daughters, with Claire receiving all the money and Katherine his estate "Dark Oaks." It’s a tale of greed, power and blood and Alucard is right in the middle of it!
