The Carradine Case

Girls quite plainly like hams with élan,
Even veiny cold clams, pale and wan    
For they flock to Count Drac --
The old crock with the knack --
Transylvania's vampire Don Juan.

John Carradine and Melinda Plowman in Billy the Kid versus Dracula (1966). The aging but always working Carradine had previously played the no account Count in House of Frankenstein (1944), House of Dracula (1945), an adaptation of Dracula on the TV series Matinee Theatre (1956), and would do so once more in Nocturna (1979).
