This projection starring Frank Langella, Laurence Olivier and Kate Nelligan, manages to stand out from other filmographic versions for several reasons, among them, for being a theatrical adaptation on the work of Bram Stocker, made by Halmiton Deane and John L. Balderston. The projection reflects the deep romanticism between the protagonist and the woman of whom he feels a strong attraction, Lucy. The intention ofdirectorit was to involve the viewer in a love story, therefore, the vampire figure did not take the form of a repulsive creature, but of an "attractive, sexy, fascinating and, therefore, dangerous" Drcula.
