I grew up watching Frank Langella & Christopher Lee as Dracula. Had such a crush on ‘em. Gary Oldman was quite alluring as well but lacked the classy camp of the others.

hands down 2thumbs up Christopher lee was the very best at playing count dracula..bela lugosi couldn't hold a candle to the acting Lee did as portraying the evil vampire that was out for blood...bela should have been a shoe salesman.....

Gary Oldman;
IT IS NO LAUGHING MATTER!!! We Draculs have a right to be proud, what devil or rich what ever so great as a killer whose blood flows through these veins. Blood, Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!! The best lines ever written into a script for the character of Dracula.

I'll have to say my favorite vampire movie is Fright Night 1985, and the remake from 2012. Both are great and different enough from one another.. Bela best Dracula, just the 1st one that I remember as a kid, and you never forget the 1st one.

Bela by far - all those color horror movies were just that - (YUK)

I had to pick George Hamilton - "Love At First Bite" was one of my favorite movies as a kid.

Christopher Lee!!! Bella may have been the first, but he was a lousy actor. Lee brought pure menace, horror, yet magnetism. The perfect Dracula.

Lon Chaney, Jr. for "Son Of Dracula" (Oh, sorry. "Count Alucard" ). However, it was more for the movie rather than for Chaney. He was badly miscast. A better Dracula would have been Basil Rathbone. He had been in "Son of Frankenstein", and was under contract to Universal Studio at the time. Chaney's looks and voice were just all wrong. "Put it out, will ya", was the line that confirmed the miscasting. It had a very good ending. The director was Robert Siodmak and four years later he would win an Oscar nomination for directing the 1946 film, "The Killers", confirming that once in a while a smaller film studio could draw the fifth ace.

I can name a couple more that weren't name "Dracula" but were very convincing vampires. Reggie Nalder who played one of the scariest vampires in "Salem's Lot" from 1979 and Jonathan Frid who played Barnabas Collins in the gothic-soap "Dark Shadows".

Would have expected Lugosi to rate higher than 56 percent, considering he virtually defined the role on stage and in the 1931 classic. Max Schreck from the 1922 silent classic, "Nosferatu" was even scarier, but technically his character was not named Dracula so he did not make the list. Carradine was very good in a number of roles and merits respect for several performances in various genres.

Bella is my fav but Frank Langella would come a close 2nd.

I read Frank's book, he'd be the first to tell you he's the best. Guy is really full of himself.
