The name of the film was "Dracula Bites the Big Apple" and it was directed by Richard Wenk. The Count boards a plane to New York to check out the "pulsating night life" after reading a quote from Hamlet. There are some very obvious gags, a bunch of more imaginative ones, over-egged performances and an irresistible musical number revolving around a cover version of King Harvest's Dancing in the Moonlight. Steve Rubell, the owner of Studio 54, pops up in a scene playing himself. It is an odd mix of comedy, horror, musical and love letter to New York which Wenk absolutely refuses to take seriously. Seven years later, the Grace Jones vehicle Vamp was created.
