The Tallbanger Scene

1921 Hollywood.

The director Charles William Lewis was directing a scene.

A strange looking man Count Nosferatu had recently approached him about directing a vampire film- an adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula.

Lewis had agreed.

And today he would be shooting the scene where Count Nosferatu bites two young women.

Unbeknownst to Lewis, Count Nosferatu was working as an operative for the Soviet Commisar of War Leon Trotsky.

Trotsky was fascinated by the Count Nosferatu’s power of hypnosis.

He was wondering if this hypnotic power could come across via this new medium of film.

If someone like Nosferatu could hypnotize movie audiences and say… make them all Communist in their thinking, it would certainly be a new warfare tactic.

Trotsky would try this experiment in the greatest bastion of capitalism in the world- the United States of America.

And thus Nosferatu went to America.

To Hollywood.

And to the now long forgotten Charles William Lewis Studios.

But a friend of British politician Winston Churchill had found out about the Trotsky-Count Nosferatu Plan.

And acting on behalf of Churchill, the friend had gone to America.

To Hollywood.

To the now long forgotten Charles William Lewis Studios.

Nosferatu was now about to make his first appearance in the movie to his two young victims.

He found himself hit over the head by a box of carrots and rendered unconscious.

Churchill’s friend then made his own appearance in the movie.

Although he himself could not be seen.

But his shadow could.

The two actresses screamed.

If the film had been shot in colour and Churchill’s friend could actually be seen (and not just his shadow) the camera would have shown a 6 foot 8 tall bunny rabbit with big pink floppety ears.

Count Nosferatu vanished from history.

Although a German actor named Max Schreck would later play Nosferatu’s persona in an F.W. Murnau directed German Expressionist film released a year later in 1922.

    Oh wow

  4. thekeystonegirlblogs said,

    Hmm, someone else liked biting women, down Hollywood way — Sydney Chaplin, but I don’t know if he was a vampire!

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      No, I hadn’t heard that Sydney Chaplin was a vampire.

      He may have just been a vampire wannabe.

      Who emerged in the limelight and not in the sunlight.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      It suddenly hit me just now that you’re probably talking about Charlie’s half-brother rather than his son.

    I will never see any bunny the same?
    Of which reminded me of your rabbit story at the back lawn of your house so many years ago while we both got to learned to know each other at Xanga? That was an awesome beautiful story of your rabbit, Chris.
    I remembered it very well.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, I remember that rabbit very well.

      Jack O’Hare I used to call him.

      He was a great friend. 😀

    I used to have a few wild rabbits that came at that back yard of my old house.
    Now, here they are more Bambis in this area.
    I really miss your Jack O’Hare story.
    You should include him in your story as a tribute for him.
