Christopher Lee RIP [Jun. 12th, 2015|09:44 am]
Tony Grist
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.

A sad loss, but his contribution will endure through the ages!

Just so. He will be missed, and entirely deservedly.

Let us also not forget his little cameo in the BBC's rather splendid adaptation of Gormenghast. ^_^

He left a huge body of work behind.

I will sit and watch most any film, video, or interview he's done, based on his voice alone.

It was always nice to see or hear him.
