|In 1998 Q Magazine solicited its readers for questions to ask Ringo Starr. Michael Cooper of Delmar, New York, asked: "In 1974, you made a movie with Harry Nilsson called Son of Dracula
directed by Freddie Francis. Any plans to release it on video?" Ringo's response doesn't exactly answer the question: "I produced it for Apple. We had this script, Drac takes the cure, marries the girl and goes off into the sunlight - and it was the only movie we wanted to make. I called Harry because he was a blonde bombshell and we had his teeth fixed, which his mother was always thankful for. We had a lot of fun, there's a lot of musicians in it - John Bonham, Keith Moon, Peter Frampton. We had the premiere in Atlanta, the
first movie since Gone With the Wind to open there, and we had 12,000 kids screaming, we had bands ... but we left town the next day, and so did everyone else. In America, the movie only played in towns that had one cinema, because it it had two, no matter what was on down the road, they'd all go there! It's a bit of a shambles now - we went into a studio with Graham Chapman and re-voiced a lot of it, so it makes even less sense now."
Graham Chapman is the godfather of one of Harry Nilsson's children.
