Who do YOU think of when you think of Dracula?
Bela Lugosi, or Christopher Lee?

I think we ran this poll once before but I could be mistaken. Christopher Lee is far beyond in acting ability and presence than Lugosi was in the role as the Undead Prince of Darkness. There were too many places in the 1930 version that were downright silly and overdrawn. Not that it takes it down any in my book, but Christopher Lee IS Dracula.

Lee (of course!) but admit it--when you say "Dracula" you do it with the Hungarian accent. And "Children of the night, what music they make" *really* isn't the same without the accent. Lee is better, but Lugosi is iconic.

Bela Lugosi is the one I think of when Dracula is mentioned. He may not be the better actor, but he has more charm:jol:

This is tough. Here's my breakdown of Draculas:

Iconic - Bella Lugosi (Gets my vote); Christopher Lee
Most Yummy - Count Dracula (cereal)
Handsome - Frank Langella & Chris Sarandon (it's a tie for me)
Comedic - Leslie Nielsen
One you never hear about - William Marshal (Blacula)
Honorable Mention - Gary Oldman
