I vote for Bela Lugosi. Lon Chaney is a close second though.

This is a hard one for me. I really enjoy the Hammer Dracula movies with Christopher Lee and I am a huge fan of Gary Oldman's work. I gotta think on it a while.

It's still tough, but I guess I will go with Christopher Lee. It will probably change tomorrow, I like several on the list.

Horror of Dracula – 1958
Crypt of the Vampire – 1964
Castle of the Living Dead – 1964
Dracula: Prince of Darkness – 1966
Dracula Has Risen From the Grave – 1968
Taste the Blood of Dracula – 1970
Scars of Dracula – 1970
Count Dracula - 1970
Dracula AD - 1972
Count Dracula and his Vampire Bride – 1973
In Search of Dracula

He has played the Count the most of anyone (as far as I know), but that doesn't justify him being the best. Quantity over quality, I don't think so. But, that's the thing, he was a quality Dracula and I love those Hammer flicks.

So for now..Christopher Lee!

Bela Lugosi and his piercing eyes ... nothing quite like the original.

Well said! My sentiments exactly. I love the old movies and we recently found a dvd of silent horror with Nosferatu on it. My kids are learning to love that old genre as well. They all thought Lugosi's count was the best they have seen too.

Though he doesn’t associate himself with Dracula, nor is he an actor, I’ve got to say Unknown Hinson.
