Anne Rice Sayings: As a child, I saw this beautiful film, Dracula's Daughter, and it was with Gloria Holden and was a sequel to the original Dracula. It was all about this beautiful daughter of Dracula who was an artist in London, and she felt drinking blood was a curse. It had beautiful, sensitive scenes in it, and that film mesmerized me.

Anne Rice Sayings: All the stories I have told you are finally as useless as all ancient knowledge is to man and to us.
