BLOOD OF DRACULA - Paul Dunlap - "Party & Theme" (1957)

When we first started this thing, our object was to feature 'real' songs from the monster movies, you know, titles like "Vickie" by Arch Hall in "Eegah" or Frank Sinatra Jr. singing "Dance, Baby, Dance" from "The Beach Girls And The Monster," or any of the songs from "Horror Of Party Beach" by The Del-Aires, but it became increasingly clearer as we went along that a lot of really good stuff was getting left behind!! A perfect example is the Herman Cohen production "Blood Of Dracula" that had one of the best songs in a monster movie ever, Jerry Blaine singing the classic "Puppy Love," but right before and after that song is some Super Coolcat Party Music!!

Inscecure Sandra Harrison as Nancy makes the BIG mistake of listening to Miss Branding!

Nancy loosens up a bit, but her career still pretty much bombs shortly after this flick!

Oh, No!!! Party Crashers!!! And they brought their own music!! AAAAHHHH!!!!!

Oh, well, the girls are just dancin' with themselves and the cushions off the couch anyway!!

The Goober Girls think having some guys around ain't that bad of an idea!

Nancy tells Tab (Jerry Blaine), "I choose my own partners!" Ouch! but he comes back with the right on "Okay, but wait til you ask me to dance!!" The music cooks in the background!!

Wow, is this dude hep or not! Cast your vote!! I only wish I knew the titles of all the records he brought to the party!!!

Louise Lewis as the ever so evil Miss Branding was one of those not so lucky actresses that were actually blacklisted as a Communist in the 50's! In this scene she has got her grill overly greased and can't take that music no more!!

Just to show the juxtaposition of Paul's talent, here's the pompous and overbearing theme that gives you no clue as to the cool stuff that is going to come in this movie!

Hello again. I wanted to invite you and your readers to my new social network that I have created. It's similar in appearance to myspace (minus all the hormone-crazed teenagers), but it is intended to serve as a hangout for artists, musicians, and music lovers. I have also included a forum category for music bloggers such as yourself to promote their blogs and share updates. If you are interested, here is the url:

I hope to see you there. Take care.
