In the late 1920 and early 1930 the great depression kicked in, this was the same time the movie Dracula (‘31) was made. The great depression was caused by many things, some causes were the bank failure, the stock market crash of 1929, and bad government policies like the Smoot-Hawley Act for example. many people suffered during the great depression, it was a dark time in America. many people were unemployed, couldn’t put food on the table, and overall the economy was down. Dracula (‘31) became popular during this time, it will be remembered as a classic and have the most popular version of Dracula to date. I found the movie to be enjoyable and the plot of Dracula (‘31) to be good, the person who plays Dracula did a good job bringing the character to life and I see why it’s the most popular version of Dracula to date. see why people will enjoy making the days but their other reason why people enjoy this movie. there are many reasons why Count Dracula appealed to people living sometimes at the time it was released. People didn’t have much going and having to escape reality is good to work the stress, especially in those times, and what better way to escape reality than watching a movie. This is why I think it became people enjoy Dracula, it was an escape from the sad reality for people around those times. this is why Count Dracula appealed to people living at the time it was released.
