Friday's Fright Film Fact

Universal Pictures head Carl Laemmle originally wanted Conrad Veidt, who had appeared in The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), Waxworks (1924) and The Man Who Laughs (1928) to play the lead role in Dracula (1931) and Paul Leni to direct the film.  Ultimately, Bela Lugosi got the role, and Tod Browning directed.
