We Will Remember Thee, Mr Lee

Mr. Christopher Lee died on ye 7th. I was able to meet him once, when he appear'd at a local downtown theatre to promote one of his films (I think it was a Three Musketeers flick), and he exuded intelligence and kindness. As a kid, I was a horror film fanatic, first with the universal horror films, and then Hammer Films. Mr Lee became an instant favourite. His Dracula remains my favourite in cinema, although the films gradually became rather silly. I admit that I love The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films, and was delighted to see Lee's brilliant performances in those series. May He rest in peace.
