Dracula and Phantom

So what do Dracula (1931) and The Phantom of the Opera (1925) have in common?

Carla Laemmle

They were small roles…she was a dancer in Phantom and she was in the stage coach in Dracula, but she was there. Right there at the beginning, at the golden age of cinema.

She also just sent me her autograph. She’s 102.

I’m going to be grinning for weeks.
