Count Orlak nor DRACULA (1931) turn into bats. Lugosi turns into a bat in ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEETS FRANKENSTEIN (1948), though...


Although he isnt shown transforming in DRACULA, he certainly does appear as a bat:

I always assumed it was his emissary....but, yeah, sure!
Now Orlok- he sent rats ahead of him as emmisaries.
Though in DRACULA, Renfield describes "Rats! Ratssss! Every where!!!"


At one point in the film, Martin(Dr.Seward's employee), is outside the house and trying to shoot the bat, to which Van Helsing tells him something along the lines of "you're wasting your time, Martin, you wont harm THAT bat" inferring that he knows that it is of supernatural origin and perhaps Dracula himself.

Dracula fans take note:    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drácula_(1931_Spanish-language_film)


Rcm,  if you can snag this you might like it.  The guy playing Spanish Dracula (draculo? The o at the end of a name in soanishbusually signifies male, the a is usually feminine.)  Looks a lot like uncle Bela.

I don't think you realize that you are talking to the man who could write a book on the subject, including that the Spanish language DRACULA was filmed on the sets of the LUGOSI DRACULA - during the off hours of that English language production.

Sven, I don't like your posts, and I wouldn't presume to speak for RON or anyone.  I only offered you insight.  Some of us are here a long time, and know each other well.

Most you folks know Bela only played Count Dracula on screen twice. In DRACULA (1931) and ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948).
But on stage, he appeared as the count perhaps over a 1,000 times since 1928. (I know all this dumb s**t because I own lotsa horrror film books, 9 on Bela Lugosi alone!! Sad, isn't it?  Bluesad)

Here he is circa 1951.

One of Bela's movies that doesn't get mentioned much is THE RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE (1943), in which he plays Armand Tesla. This movie would have been better without the silly talking werewolf.

I kinda like the werewolf. It fit the movie. I think they should have maybe blackened Dracula's- I mean Tesla's hair, though!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
