    Description

    Dracula (Spanish Adaptation) (Universal, 1931). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    This certainly follows the truest guidelines of "rare." It's one of only two lobby cards that have surfaced for the Spanish language adaptation of the Universal classic. Thus, we are quite proud to offer this super card picturing Carlos Villarias in the title role. The film was made at the same time as the Tod Browning/Bela Lugosi version, shot at night using the same sets and a Hispanic cast. This was a fairly common practice during the early talkie era as the studios had not developed the techniques for dubbing films at this time and wanted to make product for their international audience. Directed by George Melford and Enrique Tovar Ávalos, this film stars Villarias as Count Dracula, Lupita Tovar as Eva, and Eduardo Arozamena as Van Helsing. In fact, many critics cite this as a superior film to the Lugosi version because foreign release films did not have to adhere to the strict Hays Code. This very rare card has pinholes in the corners, a minor hole in the left border, minor stains in the left and right borders, and corner bends. These slight issues do not detract from the impact of this very special card. From the Kirk Hammett Collection. Fine.
