Part of Hammer Collection; Fangs designed for - and worn by - Christopher Lee (born 1922) for one scene in 'Dracula' (1958), created by Phil Leakey (1908-1992) in 1958.
A set of blood-squirting plastic fangs designed for and worn by Christopher Lee (b. 1922), created by Phil Leakey in 1958.
'Dracula' was the first in a series of Hammer Horror films inspired by Bram Stoker's 1897 novel 'Dracula'. Christopher Lee starred as the lead character and Peter Cushing (1913-1994) as Dr Van Helsing.
The 'blood' reservoir is attached to the fangs. Lee pressed the reservoir against his palate with his tongue, and 'blood' ran through the tubes, dripping off the ends of the fangs.
