Dracula Prince of Darkness

Factual error: At the end, during the master wide shot of Diana and Shandor (C19 characters) standing over the castle moat, there is a modern aeroplane's vapour trail high above their heads.

Continuity mistake: Helen attacks Diana in Dracula's castle and is burned by Diana's crucifix. In a jumble of shots Helen reacts to the burn; Diana is seen holding up the cross, then not holding up the cross, and then holding it up again. (00:59:20)


Trivia: Dracula does not appear until 45 minutes into the film.

Trivia: Count Dracula (Christopher Lee) doesn't have a single line of dialogue in the film.

Trivia: In an interesting possible predictor of the future, the British husband and wife heroes of this British film are named Charles and Diana.
