DORIAN GRAY AND COUNT DRACULA : THE FINAL SCENE


Director, screenwriter and film critic, Jean-Luc Godard once said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to."... Whether Terence Fisher ever saw the closing moments of the 1945 Albert Lewin directed, The picture of Dorian Gray, we will never know...Even though we have flipped the screen shot from Dracula, the cinematic framing similarities in the death throws of both Fisher's Dracula in 1958 and Lewin's Dorian Gray are, you have to admit interesting.


Just like Hammer films 1958 Dracula, this 1945 MGM production of the Oscar Wilde story, also presented the audience with some although basic, first time out special effects. Although shot primarily in black-and-white, the film features four inserts in 3-strip Technicolor of Dorian'sit as a special effect (the first two of his portrait's original state, and the second two after a major period portrait of degeneration)
