Nosferatu - Lead Character

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

This still-shot, from F.W. Murnau's film Nosferatu A Symphony of Horror, depicts Max Schreck as Count Orlock.  

"Schreck," which means "fright" in German, remains famous for his role as the infamous count.  Rarely did a name fit a film persona so well.

To look at Schreck’s rat-shaped head, or his terrifying shadow, is to see one’s worst nightmare. Never was cinematic makeup put to better use.
