Drakula halla (1921): The Cinema's First Dracula
Abstract:This essay covers the history of Kroly Lajthay's Hungarian film Drakula halla (1921), the cinema's first adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula. The essay attempts to construct a production history of the film, as well as to create an accurate list of cast members and key filming locations. As Drakula halla is lost, the essay also features the very first English translation of an extremely rare 1924 Hungarian novella based on the film, which offers much insight into its narrative.
