The Original Pain in the Neck
Dracula became the premier Universal Monster in 1931 when he leapt from the Broadway stage onto film screens for the first official adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel.

And did Carlos Villarias prove how bite-lingual this vampire can be in the concurrently shot Spanish version of the story? Learn if Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie send this ancient horror back to rest in the earth in which it was buried. Listen Now!
