Bela Lugosi, Who Rode the Role of "Dracula"

Bram Stoker, author of

"Dracula" (1897)

     Bram Stoker wrote Dracula, his best-know book, in 1897 but the book he wrote is not exactly what cinema-lovers have come to expect after watching Bela Lugosi and his successors over the decades.
     For starters, Stoker loved to include all the up-to-date inventions like the typewriter--hard to imagine it being new when we are using such things as "blackberries" that are small enough for their users to completely compute in their own hands!
     Stoker had originally written Dracula in hopes that Sir Henry Irving would play the title role.
     Irving wouldn't have anything to do with it.
     But Universal Studio and Carl Laemmle, Jr., eventually bought the story and made theatrical and cinematic history.

     Lair of the White Worm is another Bram Stoker story but Maven hasn't read it yet.
     You can click on the cover at left a free link for the on-line story about an "Archaeologist [who] unearths the skull of a giant worm that he believes was worshipped as a god during Roman times."
      So Good Reading!
