Independent-International’s ‘Dracula vs. Frankenstein’- my favorite cheesy horror movie! I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t mention that Dracula’s ring was made by Joeb Ruzi, a jeweler in New York. This was quite possibly the only time in a horror movie that a piece of jewelry, namely Ruzi’s Ring, was mentioned in the opening credits. I still think the Ruzi Ring should have won an Oscar for best supporting actor in this movie.A bit about the designer of the ring-http://jabootu.net/?p=503 From the comments section-“…Joeb Ruzi …had a jewlery store for many years on 2nd avenue in the East Village.”And a bit morehttp://evgrieve.com/2015/02/west-village-based-jeweler-lori-mclean.htmlAs I said, this is my favorite cheesy horror movie!
Ruzi's Ring Rules!I love Dracula vs Frankenstein! Saw it on TV many times in the 1970's. I own the VHS and DVD. Al Adamson, the director, is my favorite B-movie director.It was also Lon Chaney's final film, sad.
And That Dorian Gray makeup by Dick Smith on page 56 used to give me nightmares as a kid.
