Oct. 26 – The International Film Series presents the Spanish-language version of “Drácula” (1931, United States,104 minutes, directed by George Melford), with an introduction by Nick Clark, a master’s student in American culture studies, and Britt Rhuart, a doctoral student also in American culture studies. In the 1930s, Hollywood studios courted Spanish-speaking audiences by filming Spanish versions of certain titles. Perhaps the most famous example is “Drácula,” shot at the same time as the Tod Browning version but filmed at night, after Browning’s crew had left. Maybe the nighttime shooting benefited the production, for many horror fans deem the “Spanish Dracula” as the superior film. Judge for yourself at this almost-Halloween screening of a horror classic. The screening will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Gish Film Theater, located in Hanna Hall. Free
