Bram Stoker's classic horror novel Dracula inspired a generation of artists, writers, and thespians. Among those inspired were the playwrights Hamilton Deane and John Balderston who, in 1927, brought a fully-authorized adaptation of Dracula to the Broadway stage, with an unknown actor, Bela Lugosi, as the titular vampire. The play proved so successful, and Lugosi's take on the role so influential, that when Dracula was brought to the screen by Universal in 1931, only Lugosi could essay the role of Count Dracula, and his performance would inspire generations. This stunning 1/8-scale styrene model kit recreates Lugosi's interpretation of Dracula from the Broadway play. Needs paint and glue for final assembly. Recommended for experienced modelers.
