Creature Most Foul

February 09, 1992

The photo caption with Film Flips Jan. 26 states "Bela Lugosi, the original film Dracula . . ." is misleading and incorrect. The Max Schreck as Nosferatu original Dracula ("Nosferatu") from Bram Stoker's Gothic novel, was produced and directed in 1922 in Germany by F. W. Murnau, a silent starring Max Schreck who made Lugosi look tame in comparison.
