Clara Bow's husband, Rex Bell, suggests that Eddie get it on with Betty Boop. Betty asks Eddie to accompany her in a rendition of "My Silent Love." Count Dracula, who is played by Bela Lugosi, comes to life, gets Betty Boop in the clinch, bends over her menacingly and sensually at the same time, and utters: "Boop! You have Booped your last boop!"
- "My Silent Love"
- Sung by Bonnie Poe
Betty is portrayed by singer-actress Bonnie Poe who was one of several actresses who voiced the star in the animated Betty Boop cartoons. the controversy comes via Helen Kane, the “original Boop-Oop-a-doop girl,” a popular singer who capitalized on her novel coquettish voice to become an on-stage hit in the late 1920s through early 1930s. Helen Kane sued over the Impersonation of her as Betty Boop. any such appearance as Betty Boop would have negated her claim.
