Sir Christopher Lee (1922 - 2015)

Very sad to hear today that Sir Christopher Lee passed away on Sunday. A real legend of the British film industry appearing in many of my favourite movies; often alongside another childhood hero - Peter Cushing.

When I was growing up, Christopher Lee was Dracula.
But it was the Wicker Man that I believe was Lee's greatest film...

Lee's performance was truly mesmerising as the Scottish island lord intent on sacrificing Edward Woodward to Pagan Gods! If you haven't seen this film, go and watch it now - and I don't mean the remake!! 

A small humble tribute from a rather insignificant blog, but well meant.
