Dracula is a lost 1920 Russian film, apparently the first ever movie adaptation of the popular Bram Stoker novel. No known copies have survived.

A YouTube video claims to be the actual 1920 film, but multiple sources have since discredited the authenticity of the video.[1]

No other details are known about it, and all available information comes from The Vampire Book - The Encyclopedia Of The Undead by J. Gordon Melton.[2]
