Jonathan Harker's journal 📖
His face was a strong—a very strong—aquiline, with high bridge of the thin nose and peculiarly arched nostrils; with lofty domed forehead, and hair growing scantily round the temples but profusely elsewhere. His eyebrows were very massive, almost meeting over the nose, and with bushy hair that seemed to curl in its own profusion. The mouth, so far as I could see it under the heavy moustache, was fixed and rather cruel-looking, with peculiarly sharp white teeth; these protruded over the lips, whose remarkable ruddiness showed astonishing vitality in a man of his years. For the rest, his ears were pale, and at the tops extremely pointed; the chin was broad and strong, and the cheeks firm though thin. The general effect was one of extraordinary pallor.

#HammerFilms main #Dracula arc viewing reaches “DRACULA AD’72”.
Was never a fan,but to be fair I haven’t seen it for years.
The random opening that doesn’t link to the previous film always sat wrong, the Alucard’ thing was dreadful & it commits THE greatest crime in #Hammer history...not making #CarolineMunro a super-sexy Vampire Bride when it had a clear chance to do so.
What a shameful, would’ve been historic, waste that was.
But...I’m looking forward to revisiting it & seeing is my views have changed.
Although 2 components that were always wonderful are #StephanieBeacham & her cleavage.

The story of Dracula’s grandfather, one of the greatest rulers of the #MiddleAges , Mircea the Old 1386-1418 maintained a degree of independence in Wallachia, surrounded on all sides by hostile actors. His diplomatic acumen, combined with military prowess, made Mircea among the greatest leaders his land would ever know. During the Ottoman civil war following the battle of Ankara in 1402, Mircea played the role of kingmaker in southeastern Europe. He consolidated and strengthened the institutions of his principality and established a dynasty from which the Dracula legend would arise.
