Tough one, almost a toss-up. Universal's was just weak enough and Hammer's just strong enough to make it a contest. In the end, however, I had to go with the '31. Why, you ask? Simply because of what it meant at the time, and, as much as I admire Lee, Lugosi is Dracula!
What he said.

Wish I could have voted on the last one. The Hammer version of Frankenstein just arrived today from Netflix and I was going to view it tomorrow morning and vote.

I've said it before... Lee grew into the role. I don't think his performance as the count in Horror of Dracula was that great. He didn't have the booming voice or menacing presence he eventually became famous for in this movie. And I'm not saying the later Dracula movies with Lee were good either, it's the middle ones that he really came into the role fully.

Horror of Dracula is rather slow in many places... I guess that British films in general don't hold my attention very well (with a few exceptions).
