Some shots off the TV of a restored version of F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu. The 1922 German film, featuring stage actor Max Schreck, was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. When Stoker’s widow won a copyright infringement suit in 1925, it was ordered that all prints of the Expressionist film be destroyed. But as vampire-movie expert Tim Kane notes, “the undead film continued to rise from the grave throughout the years.”

Happy Halloween!
