Family Roots & Cowboy Boots!


Have pity on a poor old man just wanting to live among people in a new country.  I mean, can you blame him, really?  My dear late great-grandpappy from old Europe, Count Orlok, had to carry his own chest from the ship to his new home.  Nobody bothered to help him.  Now that is horror! How self-centered can a society be, allowing an old man to almost starve to death?!  


Once again, this YouTube video evidence reveals that my great grandpappy could walk in the daylight...but it was hard, especially at his age.  So let's honor him by watching, "'Nosferatu,' a classic 1922 German Expressionist horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, starring Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's "Dracula", with names and other details changed because the studio could not obtain the rights to the novel (for instance, "vampire" became "Nosferatu" and "Count Dracula" became "Count Orlok")."
