Dracula (1931)

"I am Dracula."
"I bid you welcome."
"Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make."
"The spider spinning his web for the unwary fly. The blood is the life, Mr. Renfield."
"I never drink wine."
"To die, to be really dead, that must be glorious!"
"For one who has not lived even a single lifetime, you're a wise man, Van Helsing."

You've nabbed almost all the classic lines there Jaimie, and I love the sets of stills! In the Universal horror pantheon, this remains a classic, mainly for the opening scenes at Castle Dracula. It's not as faithful to Stoker's novel as Murnau's NOSFERATU or Francis Ford Coppola's BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA, but it speaks it's own campy language, which back in 1930 made it a screen sensation. The middle portion is admittedly stagy and stilted, but it remains a showcase for Lugosi and for some atmospheric black and white lensing. It was as much a triumph for Browning as FRANKENSTEIN was for Whale.
