Jack Lewis actually wrote the script but sold all rights to credited screenwriter Carl K. Hittleman for $250.

Despite the film's title, John Carradine doesn't play Dracula. He plays a nameless American vampire in the old west, 1880 or so. The name "Dracula" is never mentioned--understandable, since Universal Pictures owns the rights to the character "Dracula" and the producers would have had to pay royalties to Universal if they named their character "Dracula".

Shot in eight days.

This film, and its companion piece, Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter, were the final films for William Beaudine. This marked the end of a career that included approximately 250 (known) films beginning in the silent period.
