Dracula (1931) At midnight on Walpurgis Night, an English clerk, Renfield, arrives at Count Dracula's castle in the Carpathian Mountains. After signing papers to take over a ruined abbey near London, Dracula drives Renfield mad and commands obedience. Renfield escorts the boxed count on a death ship to London. From there, the Count is introduced into the society of his neighbor, Dr. Seward, who runs an asylum. Dracula makes short work of family friend, Lucia Weston, then begins his assault on Eva Seward, the doctor's daughter. A visiting expert in the occult, Van Helsing, recognizes Dracula for who he is, and there begins a battle for Eva's body and soul.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Eva: [English subtitle] The next morning, I felt very weak as if I had lost my virginity.
Movie Trivia:
  • This Spanish-language version runs nearly a half-hour longer than the English-language version that was being shot during the day.
  • Director George Melford did not speak or understand Spanish.
  • Although this version was shot in Spanish, it became a mixture of dialects since the cast came from Mexico, Spain, Central and South America.
  • For decades, the only surviving print, while in mint condition, was missing several minutes worth of material that encompassed Renfield's seduction by the Dracula's brides and the voyage to England. The "lost" reel was eventually located in Cuba, and has been restored to complete the film as much as possible. Though much more worn and aged than the rest of the film, the additional footage differs strikingly from the English-language version, probably more so than any other part of the film.
  • When this film was released on DVD in 2004 as part of the "Dracula: Legacy Collection", it included closed captions for the hearing impaired, but did not contain the straight English subtitles. Universal answered buyers' complaints by telling them to simply select the "closed captions".
