In 1977, Frank Langella played the title role in a Broadway production of Dracula that became a hit, thanks largely to the charisma of its star, and the Expressionist, black and white sets designed by Edward Gorey. A year or so later Mr. Langella agreed to reprise the role in this film, that also features Laurence Olivier, Donald Pleasence, and Kate Nelligan.

It was perhaps no more than a hop, skip, and a jump from Dracula to Richard Nixon. This was another instance of Mr. Langella taking one of his stage roles—Nixon, in Peter Morgan’s dramatization of the interviews that British talk show host David Frost originally did with the disgraced former President for the BBC in 1977—and adapted it for film. Frost/Nixon, directed by Ron Howard, features an outstanding cast that incudes Michael Sheen, Rebecca Hall, Kevin Bacon, and Oliver Platt. It was nominated for five Oscars, including Best Actor, for Mr. Langella.
