    Default Bela Lugosi vs Christopher Lee Dracula

    Hi. Thought it would fun to get opinions on your thoughts on who you think is the better Count Dracula. Bela Lugosi or Christopher Lee? It's hands down Lee for me.

    I had the Dracula model from Aurora when I was a kid. It's based on Lugosi, so that's who Dracula will always be for me.

    Both are great actors IMO but Lugosi is, and always be, Dracula to me.

    Lugosi's was more creepy.

    Too bad he had the worst death. "hey guys, he's dead. Don't bother showing him getting killed. Just end the movie and roll credits."

    Lee, no contest for me! The guy had the charm, the savagery, the stature, the voice, everything to make him perfect as the Count!

    I like Lugosi too, but he was a bit pudgy and that movie, even for the time, was so badly edited that I can only place him second. His one asset, though, was his accent.

    Lugosi hands down. He will always be Dracula.

    I wonder if Peter Jackson took inspiration from the original Dracula for Saruman's exit in the theatrical ROTK. "Hey guys, we just defeated a major villain from two entire movies, but eh, no need to see that, his power is gone." *next scene*

    Thanks for the input so far. I prefer Lee because he could be charming one minute, then like a feral animal the next. Lugosi just seemed like a pudgy faced thug to me and his lines seemed forced(probably due to the language barrier). Also, Lee had the fangs and red eyes(no fault of Lugosi they didn't have those effects for the '31 version). Lugosi was the first however unless you count Max Schreck unofficially.
