The first DRACULA show I ever saw was what appeared to be a live broadcast (or tape) on (I think) NBC daytime TV way back in the 1950s. Maybe 1956.
I never forgot it.
It may have been this one.
“Matinee Theatre only did one “Dracula” episode. It originally aired on 6 January 1956 and was re-shown on 23 November 1956.”
Now they have ruined it just like everything they touch now days.
“Now they have ruined it just like everything they touch now days.”
Which is all the more rage inducing seeing as how its one of my favourite books.
The reason I remember it so well is it was playing on my grandmother’s TV in Old Hickory-Hopewell Tenn. We then went out and played in a neighbor’s field where an old Cemetery was and we played around the grave markers. Then we went into the neighbor’s house to warm up and Dracula was also on their TV.
The cemetery has now been moved and it is a housing addition.
My favorite has always been the PBS production, starring the charmingly sinister Louis Jourdan.
Full movie there.
