Into the virgin refrain, to the castle of Dracula you must not go ~ Dracula and his entourage of wives, they take also the form of wolves and bats. But that's all superstition insists one man. "A tiny spark in the fog, I felt his breath on my face." But my dear, it was only a dream you only hope you will hear him say. For if it is reality, soon the truth comes out that darling did not only dream a reality, but that she did not make up the nightmare either. All happened just as she said, and even by far more worse than that. Darling began to live an even deeper nightmare and as the physical scars on her and the others began to multiply, soon things became even self-evident that something a whole lot more than just shaking happened. Her throat and the scars there alone prove that. Finally, remarks the good and wise professor (doctor), "Nina, how long have you had these marks?"

His first Dracula film which came out in 1931, and gave him a starting gun of about three wives, all vampires smitten, the original idea for the host of the deep vampire bite originated from a 1924 stage play by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston, which also grew out of the novel by Bram Stoker. And although the original black and white Bela Lugosi gem features a neck-biting, blood-sucking vampire who the people of the village warn a salesman named Mr. Renfield (Dwight Frye) not to go there, the hard-headed man (The Ballad of Dwight Frye by Alice Cooper) does not listen to them and goes there much to the parody of the sacrificial endemnity of his own life. According to more modern documentation and even by radio programs such as Coast To Coast though, it is the psychic vampire of the living human creatures which take the most out of unaware and defenseless other human creatures though.

The original Dracula, Bela Lugosi had quite an interesting entrance into America. He entered as a merchant seaman, and just like some automobiles found himself recalled to his own country due to the Hungarian Revolution. One of the earliest actors of the American film industry, Lugosi made his first debut as an actor during the year of 1917. And while it is hard to imagine cinema history even going on during that time frame, and although American cinema actually began with home film movie companies on the frontier before the start of the 1900's, Lugosi simply just captured the film circa heart of horror film audiences everywhere throughout the 1930's. Bela George Lugosi, the only son of the actor who began his career as an actor at the turn of the century, the star actually born with the name of Bela Forenc Dezso Blasco left his primary education for good at the very young age of twelve, and actually became a member of the theater of his country, The Hungary Royal National Theater.
