This week was in the works anyway, due to my recent Billy the Kid vs Dracula review. Then Christopher passed away, and it seemed even more appropriate.
If I remember correctly, I started Monster of the Day with Karloff’s Frankenstein Monster. The second day was Lugosi’s Dracula. Everyone’s Dracula is a separate monster in a way.
Here we get Lon Chaney Jr’s version. Every monster fan loved Larry Talbot, but the beefy, Joe-American Chaney was a poor choice to play the aristocratic, European Count. Not disastrously bad, but not a patch on John Carradine or, of course, Lugosi. Still, the movie itself is quite fun.
