What's Left Of The Very First Dracula Movie

Cool Poster

This was a Hungarian production and dated from 1921.  It was actually reworked and re-released in 1923, which makes for some confusion as to when it was first released.  1921 is the correct year.  It was directed by Karoly Lajthay, who also co-wrote the script.  One of the other writer was to go on to be the legendary Hollywood director Michael Curtiz.  It starred Paul Askonas as "Drakula."
