Dracula (1974)
97 min.
Directed by Dan Curtis.
With Jack Palance, Simon Ward, Nigel Davenport, Penelope Horner, Murray Brown, Pamela Brown, Fiona Lewis.
Solid Dan Curtis TV adaptation of the Bram Stoker novel with Palance performing nicely as the infamous nightly nobleman.

Reasonably faithful to the original novel, everyone's favorite Count leaves his homeland and relocates to England to some new digs...and some fresh blood.

Added bonus to this particular entry has Drac hounding a dead ringer for his love from centuries ago.

Good locales, Palance's controlled, sneering performance as the Count is a delight to watch.

Nicely lit, dramatic climax.
