Spanish Dracula

Here's a shot from the Spanish version of "Dracula" shot at the same time as its American counterpart.

  1. I've heard some critics say that the Spanish-language version is much more stylish than the Tod Browning version. From the brief scenes I've seen on YouTube, it looked like the star was over-acting. His bug-eyed mugging looked more appropriate for Renfield than Dracula. But then, a lot of actors in early 1930's movies tended to use broad gestures; maybe they had picked up the habit while making silent movies. Also, it might be unfair to judge the performance based on a few brief clips.
