A 1979 comedy film directed by Stan Dragoti and starring George Hamilton (!?) as the tannest Count Dracula ever to appear on film.

The world-weary count is evicted from his ancestral home by the (Communist) Romanian government and, along with his bug-eating assistant Renfield (Arte Johnson), travels to modern-day New York City in search of his soulmate, currently reincarnated as flaky fashion model Cindy Sondheim (Susan Saint James). In winning her heart, he must deal with bumbling assassination attempts from her long-suffering psychiatrist/quasi-boyfriend Jeffery Rosenberg (Richard Benjamin), who is "Fritz" Van Helsing's grandson.

Much, much better than it probably sounds, the film provided the role of a lifetime for Hamilton, and the rest of the cast turns in excellent performances as well.

Hamilton has tried on numerous occasions to get a sequel filmed, but the concept remains mired deep in Development Hell.

Provides examples of:

 Cindy's Agent: What are ya gonna do, eat your lunch in my office?

Renfield: No, my lunch is going to eat you.

 I am [Dracula] a great power -- but I am humbled before you. [1]

Notes

  1. Note that Frederick March's Death also spoke in a cheesy eastern European accent. If the line works, it works, right?
