A Klaus Shave

Orlok's back! Now in color and sound
All in black, with his skull bare, uncrowned
He's pale and he's hairless
And with daylight gets careless
Can't get back to his burial mound.

David Cairns

Klaus Kinski stars in Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979). Kinski's character is called Dracula, but is a loving homage to Orlok, the count in the original, silent Nosferatu. Bruno Ganz is blood source Jonathan Harker.
