“Our battle, our struggle, is to create art. Our weapon is the moving picture. Because we have the moving picture, our paintings will grow and recede; our poetry will be shadows that lengthen and conceal; our light will play across living faces that laugh and agonize; and our music will linger and finally overwhelm, because it will have a context as certain as the grave. We are scientists engaged in the creation of memory but our memory will neither blur nor fade.” Starting my worlddraculaday moviemarathon with E. Elias Merhige’s Shadow of the Vampire, which details the making of 1922’s Nosferatu (if, however, the film’s monster was indeed, truly a monster). The film told the story of Dracula with names changed and the setting moved to Germany since the filmmakers couldn’t get the rights to Stoker’s novel.
