Nosferatu - Count Orlock

Nosferatu - Count Orlock Famous Historical Events Film Legends and Legendary People Visual Arts World History Fiction Crimes and Criminals

This image depicts a still-shot from F.W. Murnau's famous film, Nosferatu A Symphony of Horror.  Max Schreck played the role of "Count Orlock" in the film. (It was Murnau’s way of not completely ignoring Bram Stoker’s copyrighted material from the Dracula story).

Schreck (meaning "fright" in German) was the actor’s real name.  His performance still stands as one of the most compelling in film history.
