Happy Halloween, everyone. Note that this ad for Dracula does not mention or show Bela Lugosi. It does show one of my favorite character actors, Dwight Frye, who played Renfield.
I think I first saw Dracula on Creature Features, a late night horror show on KTVU Channel 2. Edward van Sloan's speech before the curtain made an impression on, as did Lugosi's performance. It made me want to see more Universal horror films.
