Yeah but a good age though. I grew up with him and Vincent Price as Dracula. Were they in competition back then?

Sir Christopher Lee Has Passed Away..... or has he? (Cue dramatic music and screeching violins)
Sad loss to the entertainment industry.

Their films have stood the test of time with real acting rather than a reliance on CGI.
You can often find one of their films showing on the Horror channel.

Re: Sir Christopher Lee Has Passed Away

Couldn't agree more Mav and no doubt we will see quite a few movies with Sir Christopher Lee over the coming days.

Re: Sir Christopher Lee Has Passed Away

Very sad, he had a terrific sense of humour, and I would think he wouldn't have objected to this comment; I wonder if the signing doctor made sure with a wooden stake.
A great loss.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Sir Christopher Lee Has Passed Away

RIP Sir Christopher Lee. Sad
There aren't many people left who you can truly call a screen legend but he was one, and, although he lived to the grand age of 93 I was hoping, and thought he would make it to a century.
I've been a fan of his films for most of my life along with Cushing and Price so at least the trio are back together again now.
And there's a huge catalogue of work that he has produced during his career so that will live on and I hope there's going to be a season of his films on television which I will look forward to.

Did you know that Sir Christopher Lee was in a feature film with Michael Gove?
