Christopher Lee RIP

It would be silly to be too sad about a man dying at 93 full of honours and achievement but I do feel a little wistful knowing there'll be no more movies featuring Christopher Lee. He was, after all, still active and (it seems almost ridiculous to say it) at the height of his powers. He was a bona fide film star- a commanding screen presence- who- weirdly- almost never got to play the good guy. He was in a lot of bad movies but never- so far as I'm aware- gave a bad performance. Draculas come and go but his was definitive.
