Filmed simultaneously and released in 1931 the English language and Spanish language versions of “Dracula” are very similar in many ways but very different in other important ways. The English language version stars none other than Bela Legosi in the lead role. The Spanish language version stars Carlos Villarías in the lead role. Bob and I both prefer Bela Legosi’s portrayal, but we differ on which version is the better film. If you get a chance to watch both you definitely should. They are both excellent films and certainly have set the stage for later horror films, all the way to the present day.
