Still image from the MGM film Blacula
The debut feature by William Crain — one of the first African American directors to graduate from UCLA’s film program — Blacula stars Gary, Ind., native William Marshall as African prince Mamuwalde, christened “Blacula” by the original Count Dracula upon cursing him with vampirism. Fast forward 200 years: two flamboyant American antiques dealers buy Blacula’s coffin and transport him from Transylvania to 1970s Los Angeles, where, awakened, he discovers Tina (Vonetta McGee), a woman with an uncanny resemblance to his dead wife.
