Filmed at Bray Studios, while The Nanny was in production at Elstree, Dracula Prince of Darkness marked Christopher Lee’s return to his most famous role for the first time since the original Dracula in 1958. Dracula director Terence Fisher was also back, although the role of the vampire hunter was now played by Andrew Keir as Father Sandor (Peter Cushing’s Van Helsing appears only in a flashback to the original Dracula). The film features some memorable set pieces, notably the shocking sacrifice of Alan Kent (Charles Tingwell), and ranks as one of the quintessential Hammer horrors.
