Dracula- Mirror Scene (1931)

Dracula was released in 1931 and stars Bela Lugosi, Helen Chandler, David Manners, and Edward Van Sloan. This scene features Count Dracula and Van Helsing (Lugosi and Van Sloan) together.

Earlier, Van Helsing had noticed that Dracula did not have a reflection in a mirror and wanted to test with another mirror. Upon seeing the mirror, Dracula immediately smacked it down. He stated that he did not like mirrors and prepared to leave the room. As he was going, he stated "For one who has not even lived a single lifetime, you're a wise man Van Helsing".
