As promised/threatened! A picspam of ITV's 1968 version of Dracula, made as part of their Mystery & Imagination series, with Denholm Elliott, James Maxwell, Suzanne Neve, Bernard Archard, Corin Redgrave, Susan George and Joan Hickson.

This was actually the first version of the original Dracula I'd ever seen/read, so I can't comment on changes properly, but from what the info booklet tells me and Googling, this version cut out some sections to keep the action contained in Whitby (barring one flashback), conflated Renfield with Jonathan Harker (who's already married to Mina), and Lucy has only one suitor, Dr John Seward (her fiance). This results in two pretty random canon couples, and the only thing to do is ship them with everyone else. Which, to be frank, they are already only too inclined to do...

But, as you can tell, this is not the world's greatest adapation of Dracula. And thank goodness; where would be the fun in that? ;-p

Horror duller than a party political broadcast apparently )
