Andy Warhol’s Dracula, also known as Blood for Dracula, directed by Paul Morrissey, is a 1974 Warhol-produced film starring Udo Kier and Joe Dallesandro, with appearances by famed directors Vittorio de Sica and Roman Polanski. Released only a year after Warhol and Morrisey’s Frankenstein film, it is a campy retelling of a horror classic, centering on Dracula’s arrival in Italy in hopes to feast on the blood of virgins, but problems arise when he is unable to locate any chaste young women. From the promotional material, “Once again, the classic horror tale is revamped into a wild combination of sex, gore, and comedy as only the Warhol- Morrissey team could produce.”
This collection includes four lobby card posters with various stills from the film printed on thick card stock (14 x 11 in.), two photocopied “Opening Announcement Story” packets with plot summary and cast members, unbound sheets with full cast and crew credits, photocopied review of the film in Newsweek (8 1⁄2 x 11 in.), and two folded offset printed “Pressbooks” containing promotional information and listing of lobby cards and posters (11 x 15 in., 11 x 14 in.).
