The Romance of Dracula
The Romance of Dracula: A Personal Journey of the Count on Celluloid by Charles E. Butler is available via now. It is a labour of love for the films based on Bram Stoker's novel Dracula. From Max Schreck (1922) to Marc Warren (2006). Fourteen reviews of fourteen classic movies. The epilogue shows reviews of movies in which Dracula has made a token appearance.
The book is an extensive look at the original vampire, Count Dracula and his role in from Nosferatur to modern movies such as Bram Stoker's Dracula. Butler makes you really think about the movie and how the count has changed over time or in some cases doesn't change.
This is one of the most comprehensive non fiction book that looks at Count Dracula from a movie expert not just a literary expert. There are funny descriptions as well as thought provoking explanations and exampels through out the book. This is a highly recommended read for any vampire fan but especially Dracula.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
