LOOKING BACK, Cinema's Greatest Moments...

 

It's high time for another one of my

'LOOKING BACK, Cinema's Greatest Moments'...

 

With all the TWILIGHT: SAGA's (I must be one of the only people in the world who is NOT a fan) I can't help but fill up with nostalgia for the vampire films I was watching to obsession when I was a teenager...

BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA (in my opinion) is one of Coppola's great masterpieces... The film adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel: 'Bram Stoker's Dracula'. Here are some scenes of the love story between Mina and Dracula... which could be read as a love story between life and death, or perhaps the love story between light and dark, or perhaps the love story of all attracting and conflicting opposites... Now, this is goooood!

This is how I looked, younger, when I was working for Sony as Marketing Director in France. This was one of my favourites films I released. I found artists who designed the art you see on the picture, I provided them to key theatres. I remember of this contest where the winners were sent to a castle in Transylvania, the very castle of Vlad Tepes "The Impaler". I had arraanged for them to spend a night in this castle, but they could not leave their hotel because of 1 m deep snow.

I had organized a premiere at The Big Rex, 2800 VIP's Copola attending, guest star Christopher Lee,  ministers, wife of François Mitterand... Fake snow, antique carriage with black horses and a coffin, dressed up Vampire fans all over the cinema, a grand Water Show prelude (turning bloody red of course), 300 litres of Bloody Mary offered in the cinema, after-party at the Queen's club with a 2* chef serving his dishes, Vampire Drag Queens... Number exclsuive watches: Francis got N°1, Sophia the N°3 and I kept the N°2, all sorts of fun memories.

Bigger satisfaction the film was a huge Box Office success with 4 M admissions!
Much more than Fright Nights 2, the other genre movie I had released which trained me in the art of promoting a vamire's movie.

 I remember Coppola told me "stop beeing a Dog (working for a major) become a Wolf! (independent)
