Drink the blood before it Klotz!

DRACULA PÈRE ET FILS / DRACULA AND SON (1976) is a comedy by director Edouard Molinaro (LA CAGE AUX FOLLES) that is notable for being Christopher Lee's last appearance to date as the Prince of Darkness. It's based on Claude Klotz's 1974 novel Paris-Vampire, which has never been published in English as far as we know (For its U.S. release in 1979, Molinaro's film was drastically recut, rewritten and revoiced to become a universally loathed WHAT'S UP TIGER LILY-style send-up of vampire movies). Here's a cover scan of the French-language movie tie-in paperback.
