DRACULA (1979)

Following his long-running and Tony®-nominated performance as Count Dracula on the Broadway stage, Frank Langella starred in this screen adaptation directed by John Badham, fresh off his own blockbuster success with SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER. Laurence Olivier plays Van Helsing, Donald Pleasance is Dr. Seward and Kate Nelligan is the Count's willing consort Lucy Seward. In a departure from Bram Stoker's novel, it's Mina Van Helsing (Jan Francis) who's dispatched early here, with Lucy becoming Dracula's true intended. The spooky music is by John Williams. DIR John Badham; SCR W. D. Richter, from the play by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston and the novel by Bram Stoker; PROD Walter Mirisch. U.S., 1979, color, 109 min, DCP. RATED R
