Dracula's Daughter
After the death of Count Dracula at the hands of Von Helsing, the professor finds himself being held for murder in London where he calls on the help of the vacationing psychiatrist Jeffrey Garth. Garth’s return to London to aid his friend also coincides with the arrival of the mysterious Countess Marya Zaleska aka Dracula’s Daughter. After disposing of Dracula’s body in an attempt to release herself from his dreaded hold, Countess Zaleska finds herself unable to free herself of her dark curse and in desperation, tries to enlist help from Garth himself. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Dracula’s Daughter”.

· At Lady Esme Hammond’s dinner party, Jeffrey Garth is standing to the right of the fireplace with Sir Aubrey standing between him and a seated Countess Marya Zaleska. They’re still standing there when they talk about Jeffrey’s trip and Von Helsing. When Countess Zaleska speaks and the conversation changes, Jeffrey is now standing in the middle, between Sir Aubrey and the Countess.

· Jeffrey Garth visits Countess Zaleska in the evening. She is sitting back on the couch with each hand on the pillows beside her and her legs crossed. Jeffrey walks over to the railing and Countess Zaleska can be seen in the background, sitting forward and her hands near her lap.
