Christopher Lee dies at age 93
Goodbye to an outstanding actor who has left behind a wonderful legacy in the horror genre. Christopher Lee – June 7, 2015
Christopher Lee. The last great actor from the 2nd golden age of horror and beyond. He has been in over 200 films. I’m glad he was able to transcend his heyday and continue to work until quite recently. It seems like he has had a very full life. He proved to be an excellent actor and he brought respect to the horror genre.
Here are some Lee films I have reviewed on PoH:
City of the Dead – 1960
The Skull – 1965
The House That Dripped Blood – 1970
Dr. Terror’s House Of Horrors – 1965
Some of my favorite Lee films:
The Horror of Dracula
Dracula Has Risen from the Grave
Hound of the Baskervilles
The Devil Rides Out
The Man With The Golden Gun
The Curse of Frankenstein
The Whip and The Body
He was a LEGEND
Ian Fleming wanted him to play Bond; Tolkien wanted him as Gandalf – that sums it up.
Your faves make for a formidable list, altho I’ve not heard of the last title
It’s better known name is The Whip and The Body (1963). It’s an early Mario Bava film. Knowing what a gentleman Lee was, it was probably not one of his fave films.
