Director F. W. Murnau was sued by Bram Stoker's widow for this unauthorized adaptation of "Dracula." She won, and the court ordered all prints of this German Expressionist masterpiece to be destroyed. Thankfully, some copies survived and have now been digitally restored. German composer Hans Erdmann's original score was thought to be lost for quite some time, but our soundtrack is fully restored and conducted by Berndt Heller. [Silent with English intertitles]
