      COUNT DRACULA, A BBC TV production, produced by Morris Barry; Directed by Philip Saville; screenplay adapted by Gerald Savory from the novel by Bram Stoker; Cinematography by Peter Hall; Edited by Richard Bedford; Production Design by Michael Young; Costume Design by Kenneth Morey; Music by Kenyon Emrys-Roberts; Makeup by Suzan Broad; Visual Effects by Tony Harding and Mitch Mitchell; Script editor: Sally Head; Vidoe editor: Derek Miller-Timmins; Production assistant: Roselyn Parker. 1977.
      CAST: Count Dracula - Louis Jourdan; Abraham van Helsing - Frank Finlay; Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra - Judi Bowker; Lucy Westenra - Susan Penhaligon; Dr. John Seward - Mark Burns; Jonathan Harker - Bosco Hogan; Quincey P. Holmwood - Richard Barnes; Renfield - Jack Shepherd; Mrs. Westenra - Ann Queensberry; Bowles - George Raistrick; vampire women - Susie Hickford, Belinda Meuldijk and Sue Vanner.

     Probably the most faithful adaption so far of Bram Stoker's novel DRACULA, even more so than Francis Ford Coppolla's BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA starring Gary Oldman. A few liberties were taken such as combining the characters of Arthur Holmwood and Quincey Morris into one. Mina Murray is now the sister of Lucy instead of a family friend. Jourdan, an interesting choice to portray the Count, does not look like the description in the book and does not appear "younger" each time he drinks blood as in the novel. But other than those descrepancies, does a very good job in the role. Frank Finlay does an amazing job as Van Helsing and all the other cast members perform admirably. This to me is the best version of DRACULA I have seen yet.
