It’s funny to think that people may have rented the cape in the past without knowing it’s cinematic history:

Lee’s Dracula cape found in store

“The original cape which was worn by actor Christopher Lee in the 1958 vampire film, Dracula, has been found in a London fancy dress store. The memorabilia, which has been missing for 30 years, is thought to be worth $50,000 (£24,410). Lee, who played the Count, was called upon to verify the cape was authentic after Angel’s staff discovered it.

Manager Emma Angel said she was “delighted” to have found the cloak during their annual stock take. “In the run-up to Halloween we are frantically checking our other costumes, so that we do not inadvertently let a party-goer show up to a raucous fancy dress party in any another precious pieces of film history,” she said.”

Here’s a trailer of the film to haunt you:
