The VanDerGhoul Twist
Happy birthday to Max Schreck! Born on this day in 1879, he had a long career on the German stage and screen, but is best remembered today for his role as Graf Orlok in F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922). Because of a copyright lawsuit brought on by the estate of Bram Stoker, all copies of the film were supposed to have been destroyed. However, thanks to people making illicit copies of a single surviving print, we can still enjoy Schreck’s performance today. Thanks, pirates!
