When this film was made in 1930, it was common practice for Hollywood studios to make alternative versions of their films for foreign markets - a Spanish language version of Dracula, with a different cast and crew, was filmed simultaneously, using the same sets and script but working at night with a different cast and crew. The Spanish version was included in the US release of this disc but not in the region 2 release. [Dennis Sisterson, Ealing, London]
