Coppola pinched the final shot for his Dracula.


The tableau looks much nicer in this film than it did in his film too.

Coppola is a fan of Hammer films so I am inclined to believe you even if I can't remember the shot that well.

The scene in which Harker looks out the window and we see down the castle walls and into a gourge bellow however I do remember. It is an obvious reference to a shot in 'Scars of Dracula'.
