That’s SIR Christopher Lee, Bee-atch!

CountDookuWallpaperWell this is wonderful news from overseas:

LONDON (AP) — The Lord of the Undead is now a knight of the British Empire.

Christopher Lee, whose sonorous voice and burning black eyes made him a memorable arch-villain in films from “Dracula” to “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith,” was given one of Britain’s highest honors Saturday by Queen Elizabeth II.

Lee, 87, who made his name in Britain’s low-budget Hammer Studios horror films, is one of cinema’s consummate bad-guys, appearing as everything from Bond villain Scaramanga in “The Man With the Golden Gun” to the disreputable Russian mystic in “Rasputin, the Mad Monk.”

More recent turns include the evil wizard Saruman in “The Lord of the Rings” movies and fallen Jedi Count Dooku in two of George Lucas’ “Star Wars” prequels.

  1. “Sir Christopher Lee” just rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it?

    You know Sir Lee is lovin’ it.

    Where have you been?

  3. I became hypnotized from watching Skidoo too many times, Christian. Weeks felt like hours. :-)

    Life was too hectic for a while, and spring 2009 was lethal for my allergies. But essentially I suffered from bouts of listlessness and a general lack of time with which to write for myself. I’m finally “over it,” and ready to rock. So I can finally get to reviewing The H-Man!

    H-MAN, yes. Been waiting for DECADES.

  5. I think the headline for this post shoulda simply read “Booya”.
