View-Master Classic Tales: Dracula (1976)


Thanks to everyone for the great comments from the View-Master Post yesterday. I noticed that there was more than one request to see more from the fantastic Dracula View-Master Reels. Thanks to View-Master World you can now see all of the ‘Frames’ as well as read the story that was included in the booklet back in 1976. Below are a few select ‘Frames’ and text from the set!

Scene A2 -“May the Silver Cross Protect You!”

“Our coach was ready. We boarded as evening came. At the last moment, Van Helsing rushed to the carriage. “Here, Mr. Harker. Take this silver cross! It will protect you!” The coach sprang forward. Father held the cross. From above came the red-eyed glare of the hooded driver. No other passengers. This was the coach to COUNT DRACULA’S castle!”

Scene B1 – “Dracula Casts No Reflection in a Mirror!”

” Our bedroom—strange! Spiders, tangled webs. Rats scurried from the lamplight. No paintings or mirrors. Dracula wished us to sleep. He spoke to Father by the open balcony. I unpacked Father’s shaving mirror, looked into the glass.

It seemed Father stood there alone. Dracula cast no reflection!”

Scene C5 – “Daybreak Weakens Dracula.”

“Dracula sprang! His fangs inches from us when … light from coming day passed through the window … struck the cross! Rays began to fall on Dracula himself. The vampire shrank back, his cries of pain horrible. Robbed of strength, staggering, the Count struggled back to his coffin, flung himself within ..! “NOW!” Van Helsing shouted. He seized the wooden hammer he had taken with him. Dracula lay weak and still in his coffin.”

A big thanks again to View-Master World for posting this, make sure to visit the link up top to see this View-Master Classic Tale in its entirety!
