RIP Sir Christopher Lee


Recommended Posts

Sir Christopher Lee, whose death at the age of 93 was announced on June 11, was an actor who used the modern art of cinema to evoke ancient feelings. Standing at six foot five and with a voice like chilled silver, Lee was a druid capable of inspiring deep terror, a conjuror whose skills belonged just as much to the bards of some long forgotten land as they did to the studios of Hammer. Sir Christopher Lee, a man of grand performances and operatic portrayals, brought something unique and ancient to our screens.

I love the Hammer horror films.  TCM aired some of his films Monday and I caught a few of them.  He's probably my favorite actor along with Vincent Price in what I call the "second wave" of horror films (first being the 1930s, of course).  I'd recommend checking out Horror Express if you haven't seen it.  Great movie that not a lot of people know about.
