Facts about

Originally shown (in London) in a double billing with The Plague of the Zombies.
In the scene where Dracula finally wakes up (his "resurrection" in his coffin), to the crash of thunder and a flash of lightning, he originally took, as probably anyone would, a full FOUR frames (one sixth of a second) to completely open his eyes. In the final cutting stages, an assistant editor had the idea of removing those four frames - effectively a "jump cut" - to have Dracula's eyes open in an even more shocking ONE frame. However, the editor, Chris Barnes, had already finalized the edit for that reel - so the clever cut was never incorporated!
Barbara Shelley's own scream, though dubbed by high-pitched Suzan Farmer in the final version, can be distinctly heard in the original German trailer of the film, released under the title "Blut für Dracula".
