Sir Christopher Lee, famous portrayer of Dracula and many other memorable film characters, passed away on Sunday, June 7, 2015. A few words in memoriam:
Dear Sir Christopher:
Thank you for all your glorious performances and your incredible voice and narrative vocalizations.
Thank you for illuminating my youth with the thrills of your sinister characterizations, for your strikingly dark good looks, and for all your appearances in my favorite magazine, Famous Monsters of Filmland (and thanks, too, to the late F.J. Ackerman for that unique publication).
You will be cherished as long as film exists, and people who appreciate the very best in acting and in cultured living.
