Better Deader Than Lederer

Teutonic and tall, dark and harmful
Byronic, appallingly charmful
But the Hammer Films boom
Spelled glamor-boy's doom
With demonic love-dolls by the armful.

David Cairns

Francis Lederer is down for the Count in Return of Dracula (Paul Landres; 1958). This was released one month before the film that stole all of its thunder, Terence Fisher's Hammer production Dracula (US: Horror of Dracula, also 1958), released by Universal-International.
