The Christopher Lee Appreciation Thread

Postby wharto on Fri Jun 15, 2007 6:34 am

Just finished reading his autobiography, it's very very good. The man is quite obviously a legend and yet the hierarchy in this country (UK) cannot see fit to give him a Knighthood, whilst lesser actors like Michael Caine receive, and people like Mick Jagger and Elton Fucking John have received one.

THIS COUNTRY!!!

I take that as a no then.

A zoner that either stopped coming here or was banninated; I think it was the latter.

I was half joking; the guy started a lot of '>fill in name< appreciation thread' threads.

Damn. I saw this and thought he had died or something. Scary.

Lee is great. He needs to cram in as much work as he can before he really goes.

Indeed he was the best thing in AOTC and Lord Of The Rings, he has such a powerful and commanding voice.

I believe Elton John's middle name is actually 'Hercules' and not fucking...

Agreed on the Christopher Lee thing though and a valid point made, i wouldn't suggest that Michael Cain doesn't deserve one though...

His makeup in The Curse Of Frankenstein was quite good I thought, and |Corridors Of Blood was a belting movie.

Considering that was 1957(??) it's quite ahead of it's time, and in the Kenneth Branagh (spit) version of Frankenstein, the make up was modelled on that, in my opinion.

I agree that he deserves a knighthood but there's no need to belittle Michael 'blow the doors off' Caine and the other musicians you mentioned.

All have done services to their art and to be honest, you couldn't really call them 'Knights of the realm' anyway as none of them could fend of a boat of immigrants to protect this land of ours.

But yes....Lee deserves at least an O.B.E

Jagger is a convicted criminal Elton John is a profligate tossbag. Caine okay is more deserving but still not a patch on Lee, a knighthood is the least he deserves, the man fought in WWII ffs.

Caught The Return of Captain Invincible, starring Alan Arkin & Chris Lee at a friend's house earlier today, and I have to say, this man's talent knows no bounds!

Forgot to mention, I absolutely LOVE the picture of Lee, Price, Karloff, and Cushing.
Would make a great poster for a man cave theater.

It'd be nice to see him return as Saruman for the Hobbit movies, with The White Council and all that... perhaps he could do his scenes in London? Failing that, it'd be interesting to hear him voice Smaug.

Merged!

And kinda chuffed that The Zone had two Christopher Lee is Amazing threads.

Oh, and the first post seems kinda ironic in light of Lee's recent Knighthood. Maybe the Queen reads Teh Zone?!
