Dracula Trailer (1931)
The trailer for Bram Stroker's Dracula.
On Walpurgisnacht, Renfield (Dwight Frye) goes to the Borgo Pass where he is met by Count Dracula's coach. The next day, Renfield and Dracula (Bela Lugosi) take 'the Vesta' to England. Ship arrives in Whitby harbor in a storm, captain lashed to boat, everyone dead, Renfield mad. Renfield is taken to Dr Jack Seward (Herbert Bunston)'s sanitarium near London. Newspaper clipping notes Renfield's strange desire to eat small living things.
Dracula arrives in London. He goes to a play where he is introduced to Dr Seward, daughter Mina (Helen Chandler), Lucy Weston (Frances Dade) and John Harker (David Manners). Dracula announces he has taken Carfax Abbey which adjoins the Sanitarium. Shortly thereafter, Lucy dies of blood loss. Professor Van Helsing (Edward Van Sloan) arrives to examine her. At the same time, Dracula visits, and Van Helsing notes no reflection in mirror. While Van Helsing, Seward and Harker discuss vampires, Dracula summons Mina outside. She is found fainted on the lawn.
"Bloofer lady" in white is reported by children in park. Mina admits that she has seen Lucy. Mina goes to bed wearing wolfbane while Renfield talks to Van Helsing, Harker and Seward about Dracula. Dracula comes into house, tells Van Helsing to return to his own country and that his blood flows through Mina's veins. Harker goes to Mina's room and finds her awake, dressed and on terrace. She is 'changed'. She attempts to bite him but Harker is saved by Van Helsing. At 4:45 am Dracula comes to sleeping Mina and carries her off to the Abbey. Renfield escapes to abbey; Van Helsing and Harker follow. Dracula pushes Renfield downstairs. Dracula carries Mina to coffin. Van Helsing and Harker find Dracula's coffin; Van Helsing stakes him. Mina is released from his hold. Dracula is dead.
