Re: Return of the Vampire (1943)
Lugosi's last turn as a vampire. As I understand it, they couldn't call him Dracula for legal reasons. This pairs well with Son of Frankenstein, Karloff's last and most obscure turn as the monster (from 1939).
Then you can follow up with 1935's The Raven, which was directed by the man who helmed Return of the Vampire, Lew Landers, and starred both Lugosi AND Karloff. The two horror icons made eight movies together. There's actually a book about their collaborations.
