    Dracula (Spanish) (Universal, 1931). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). At last! After seventy-four years, original lobby cards to the Spanish language version of "Dracula" finally turned up. Collectors had hoped they existed, but until two years ago, no one had ever seen them. The film was made at the same time as the Browning/Lugosi version, but shot at night using the same sets and a Spanish language cast. This was a fairly common practice during the early talkie era as the studios felt it would be better to shoot the films in the native languages rather than dub them. This version, directed by George Melford and starring Carlos Villarias as Dracula, is considered the better film. This scene depicts Eduardo Arozamena as Van Helsing and Pablo Rubio as Renfield. While this is technically a "dead card" since Dracula doesn't appear, it is still the only known copy of this card and one of only two cards known to exist on this film at all. This card has a set of staple marks in each corner, a small chip off of the upper right corner and some slight "rounding" to the other corners. If you've been hoping to acquire something original on this rare title, this may be your only chance. Fine-.
