The Many Faces of Count Dracula Throughout the past century many movies were made based on the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker These versions not only tell different series of events from the novel but also describe a Count Dracula different in appearance his animal morphism and even in the way he dies In the novel Dracula the Counts appearance when we first meet him is that of a tall old man clean shaven save for a long white moustache and clad in black from head to foot Stoker 25 Jonathan Harker upon shaking Draculas hand notices that the hand seemed like ice- more like the hand of a dead than a living man Stoker 25 However the best description that is given of the old Count is when Harker finally gets a chance to really look at the old man His face was a strong- very strong- aquiline with high-bridge of the thin nose and peculiarly arched nostrils with lofty domed forehead and hair growing scantily round the temples but perfusely elsewhere His eyebrows were very mas- sive almost meeting over his nose and with bushy hair that to curl in its own perfusion The mouth so far as I could see it under the heavy moustache was fixed and rather cruel- looking with peculiarity sharp white teeth these protruded over the lips whose remarkable ruddiness showed astonishing vitality in a man of his years For the rest his ears were pale and at the tops extremely pointed the chin was broad and strong and the cheeks firm though thin The general effect was one of extraordinary pallor Hitherto I noticed the backs of his hands as they lay on his keens in the firelight and they seemed rather white and fine but seeing them now close to me I could not but notice that they were rather coarse- broad with squat fingers
