Dracula (1931) is one of the earliest classic American horror films from Carl Laemmle's Universal Pictures - an acclaimed masterpiece directed by Tod Browning, known also for two other vampire films: London After Midnight (1927) (aka The Hypnotist) with Lon Chaney, Sr., and his own sound-era remake, Mark of the Vampire (1935) (aka Vampires of Prague), with Bela Lugosi and Lionel Barrymore.

Of the various adaptations, a few stand out: Nosferatu, both F. W.
