Chris Lee pic o' the day...
Instead of doing a regular horror-thon, I've decided to do a "Lee-athon" this month. Sir Christopher Lee's acting career spanned nearly 7 decades, and included over 275 credits in movies, TV and other media. One of his last, and greatest roles (imo) was as "Saruman, the White" in The Lord of the Rings
trilogy. So that's where my journey into this prolific, and also much-beloved actor's work shall commence.
These are some of the other films on my Lee-athon to-watch list...
Corpse Bride (2005)
The Creeping Flesh (1973)
The Curse of Frankenstein (1957)
The Devil Rides Out (1968)
Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965)

Don't know how many I'll get to before the month is out, but I own most of these on DVD or Blu-ray, and have no problem recommending any of them to others, including the B-grade flicks like Horror Express
. So I invite others to also join in the Lee-festivities.
The BD player's warmed up, the corn is apoppin, and the elves, orcs, dwarves, trolls, and wizards await...
