Considering Agrippa married Augustus' daughter and produced five children with her, I don't think so.
By his third wife, Julia the Elder (daughter of Augustus), he had five children: Gaius Caesar, Julia the Younger, Lucius Caesar, Agrippina the Elder (wife of Germanicus, mother of the Emperor Cal...

Oh, I get it. Obviously this is a troll thread, considering your weak-ass school has a 2003 Western Division Champions banner hanging in its stadium and has a bear for a mascot because it can't handle the PC police.

They are very different Draculas, portrayed at very different times in history. The 1931 film would not have been allowed to show 2/3 of what Oldman was allowed to do onscreen and yet Bela had women fainting in the aisles...without fangs or a creepy soundtrack.
I really like both portrayals, but ...

Because we weren't divided as a nation over WWII.

Additionally, most producers with money and means has parents or grandparents who fought in...

I don't. I just hate the victim mentality that has worked itself into the guts of our great nation.
I love the fact that on a whim I can start a thread on a board with an observation about a movie.
