The Four Universal DRACULAS (1931-1948) (video)

Bela Lugosi was the definitive Count Dracula in Universal's 1931 classic "Dracula."

The concurrently filmed Spanish version starred Carlos VillarĂ­as in the title role.

In 1943's "Son of Dracula", the Count (or his son--fans are still undecided) was played by Lon Chaney, Jr.

John Carradine took over the role in the 1944  monster rally "House of Frankenstein."

Carradine continued as the Count in the 1945 follow-up "House of Dracula."

And in 1948, Bela Lugosi was finally allowed to assume the role once again in the monster comedy "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein."

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
