I personally can't decide between Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi.

Good choice, I love his charisma on camera.  Although I also appreciate Christopher Lee's portayal of the more vicious and blood thirsty(no pun intended) nature.

I would go with Bela myself.  Even though he only made two appearances as Dracula I liked his version the best.

 I love Bela Lugosi's "Dracula" he was great, but Christopher Lee was the best "Dracula" of them all
I am known in many realms by many names, but those that know me in your world call me the Phantom Stranger.

You people make me sad.
So few votes for Max Shreck's Graf Orlock.

I've seen some of Lee's film s and they were pretty good.  But quite different from the Universal Classic monster films.

I liked Lugosi, Oldman, and Lee... All of them have their different portrayals and different personas of Dracula...

Lugosi was the "Original Dracula", and had that sinister smile we all come to classify as a "Vampire smile"...

Christopher Lee was definately a good pick for Dracula... Chris always has that Imperious dark aura about him... And that heighten's Dracula's status even further... He also had the most bloodthirsty, dark personas out of all three...

Gary Oldman was good in the way that, he focused on more of Dracula's haunted, heart-broken side, rather than christopher Lee's Bloodthirsty Count... Gary Oldman's interpretation of Dracula is more of a haunting love story... this was clearly shown in the scene where he refuses to bite Mina's Neck, stating, "I cannot... I love you too much..." Also, the ending was a Real Tearjerker for me...

All of them were great draculas with their own merits

I too like Oldman the best, he is IMO one of the best at being a villian

For me it depends on which Dracula you are going after. If it is the one who best personifies Stoker's dracula, it would be Max Schrek since that character was the most accurate to the book. if you are looking more for a vlad type Dracula then it is Lee with his quiet arrogance & total lack of caring for anyone in his way.

That is why Schrek's movie is the only one to ever be mentioned in a lawsuit by the Stoker family, they did not have the rights to the story & the only changes made were to certain character names. Stoker's widow won her lawsuit after they made the movie anyway & succeeded in having it banned for a time.
