While it may not stick to Bram Stoker’s novel completely, the 1931 film Dracula has probably influenced more portrayals of the count than the novel ever has. Of course the reason for this is Bela Lugosi’s portrayal of the count. His widow’s peak, high collared cloak, and broken english, all gave birth to the icon we know and love. Plus, he never sparkled.
