The first film version of DRACULA (not counting NOSFERATU, of course) premiered in New York City at the Roxy Theatre on February 12, 1931. It opened nationwide on February 14, 1931 -- a more fitting date on which to celebrate, don't you think?
MONSTER MAGAZINE WORLD is kicking off a week-long celebration in honor of The Count. Included today are stills, a poster, and a clip from the film. Also check the "Dracula Fest" tab at the top of this blog for more pics 'n stuff in the special DRACULA Gallery.
