Reviews

"The misinformation surrounding this film is staggering, and it has sadly played a major role in lessening its standing as a great film. I really hope that will start to change with the publishing of Tod Brownings Dracula. This is a superior piece of cinematic detective work and a great example of what one can accomplish when one simply does his or her homework. Im not sure if it will make any of Draculas multitudinous haters reevaluate the movie for the better, but I sure hope theyll at least stop using lies to rake it over the coals. Rhodess book is apparently the first installment of Tomahawk Press new series about classic horror films. I cant wait for the next one, and I hope it is written with the same care, attention, and sense of purpose as Rhodes put into his book." - Mike Sehretto, Psychobabble Feb 2014 "In Tod Brownings Dracula, Rhodes in-depth look at both the making of the film and the myths and legends around it, with each chapter taking a closer look at these and the making of the film as a whole. Rhodes gathers together all previously published research and carefully dissects, gives closer analysis and re-evaluates each piece and corrects where there has been either ill-informed or badly researched work, and desolates these inaccuracies. For instance, the rumour that Karl Freund directed most of Dracula, or that Browning specifically wanted Lon Chaney, Snr. for the role of The Count; that Carl Laemmle did not want Lugosi for the lead part and that he was the final, but unwanted choicea myth that Lugosi himself perpetuated. Rhodes challenges these popular myths and shows that they are wrong. The book is beautifully laid out and well-illustrated and at 376 pages, the most in-depth study on one of the most iconic films of the Twentieth Century. This is Gary Rhodes Magnum Opus and should be on every film enthusiasts shelf." - Matthew E Banks, Vamped website.
