The family of the actor best known for his role as Dracula in the 1931 film is parting with his cape. When he died in 1956, he was buried in costume — with a replica cape. He left the original with his son. Now it's going to be sold as part of an auction of Hollywood memorabilia. It's expected to get up to $2 million.
