Christopher Lee was born on May 27th 1927 in London.

Lee has a career spanning almost 70 years and that is an incredible run.

I was first introduced to Lee in "Horror Of Dracula" and then countless other Hammer horror films throughout my childhood. As with Peter Cushing, a good friend whom he was teamed in many films, I discovered Lee's pre-Hammer works after VHS became so popular.

His deep voice and 6' 5" frame made his a perfect movie villain, and he essayed the role of Count Dracula 7 times. Lee's career in cinema is unmatched by anyone.

Some of my favorite films he appeared in include "Horror Of Dracula", "The Devil Rides Out", "Dr. Terror's House Of Horrors", "Curse Of Frankenstein", "Man Who Could Cheat Death", "Man With The Golden Gun", "Hannie Caulder" and "Dracula A.D. 1972".

Lee died at the age of 93 on June 7th, 2015, just 10 days after his 93rd birthday. He left us with a very rich legacy of films that will be enjoyed for generations to come.
