Nosferatu - A Film About Dracula

A silent film by F.W. Murnau, which still defines the horror genre, Nosferatu was ordered destroyed by a British court. 

Bram Stoker’s widow claimed, successfully, that the film violated copyright protection for her deceased husband’s book, Dracula.  

Pirated copies of the famous film survived the destruction order, and today it can be seen - in its entirety - online.
