Bela Lugosi as Dracula In the 1970s, the also prestigious German filmmaker, Werner Herzog, produced a remake of Nosferatu with Klaus Kinski in the leading role, placing a greater emphasis on the tragi-romantic elements of the story and giving the film an undercurrent throughout of degeneration and decadence.

Doubtlessly the commercial success of the season, the 1931 version of Dracula from Universal Studios, raised Bela Lugosi to the summit of his professional acting career and definitively contributed to his becoming a Hollywood myth and sex symbol. The transformation went even deeper as elements of the Count remained with Lugosi always, and vice versa, of Lugosi with the Count.  Such was this that on several other occasions he was to play the part of the "Prince of Darkness", the lord and master of all vampires, although under another name (presumably to save the studio from paying all its royalty fees) in films such as The Death Kiss, Mark of the Vampire and even in a decadent and sad interpolation in the parody Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein, which, incidentally, was the first film that Elvis Presley ever saw.

Lugosi was typecast for horror roles in which there were few lines for him to speak, basically because he was never able to speak English with perfect ease.  In spite of this, the 1930s was not an unproductive period for the Hungarian actor, as after Dracula came other commercial successes not related to his vampire roles, such as Murders in the Rue Morgue, Island of Lost Souls, White Zombie (the first zombie film) The Black Cat, and The Raven.  In these films he played by preference the part of evil, sadistic and perverse villains, to which he was able to give yet a more sombre and morose appearance, due to the coldness of his expression, his unnerving sneer and his harsh Hungarian accent.  This set of films retains the nostalgic enchantment of the classics and among them there are other rewarding surprises.
