Horror of Dracula

Corrected entry: In the final scene, when Van Helsing jumps at the curtains to reveal the sunlight which will destroy Dracula, Dracula hurls himself to the ground in agony before Van Helsing gets to the curtains. This could be conceivably because Dracula was anticipating his demise, but it does look a bit awkward.

Correction: I don't think Dracula hurls himself to the ground in agony. I have always assumed that he could see what Van Helsing was about to do and he was trying to avoid being in the direct rays of the sun when the curtains came down.

Continuity mistake: In the final sequence where Dracula's foot has been disintegrated by the rays of the sun, his foot is seen firmly attached again seconds later as Van Helsing confronts him with a makeshift cross. In the scene Cushing, with his back to the camera, steps forward quickly from the foreground to cover the area where Lee's foot is briefly seen as having not been disintegrated.

Jonathan Harker: You make it very difficult for me. After all, I'm a guest here. If I'm to help you, I must have a reason.
Vampire Woman: A reason! You ask for a reason? Is it not reason enough that he locks me up in this house, holds me against my will? You can have no idea what an evil man he is... or of the terrible things he does.
