Christopher Lee 1922-2015

Farewell Christopher Lee, and thank you. Today we’ve lost a true symbol of cinema, a horror icon the likes of which we’ll never see again. He was the last of the ‘Famous Monsters’. Like Lon Chaney, Lon Chaney Jr, Bela Legosi and Boris Karloff before him, he made his mark playing classic movie villains, most famously Dracula for Hammer Studios. He was 93 years old.

“I shall be glad as long as I live that even in that moment of final dissolution there was in the face a look of peace, such as I never could have imagined might have rested there.”
