With 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' heading to theaters, we look at the actor's best work
3. "Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992)
In Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of Bram Stoker's Gothic masterwork, "Dracula," Oldman had triple duty. There was the vengeful Transylvanian warrior of the film's prologue, the Nosferatu-like, razor-licking titular Count and the love-struck Prince Vlad, all handled with expert ease and command by the actor. The film itself is seen as a miss by many but for others it was a delightful piece of experimental work from Coppola, who was shrewd in tapping Oldman for a star-making try.
