The screenplay was based on a 1928 novel by Ali Riza Seyfi called Kazıklı Voyvoda (Impaler Voivode), and is more or less a translation of Stoker’s novel, but there is no Renfield character and Güzin, the “Mina Harker” character, is a showgirl given to performing in revealing outfits. Drakula/Dracula is played by balding Atif Kaptan. Both the novel and the film make an explicit connection with the historical Vlad the Impaler, the Prince and three-time Voivode of Wallachia. This is the first film to portray Dracula with fangs.
