There is a fairly good article on The Wicker Man that looks at the production and the various versions that have been released. Info on missing scenes, cast, cuts, etc...can be found by clicking here.

Cool site, Charles! Also includes a link to NUADA, a WICKER MAN journal.

Thnx for the link Charles. Good site.
I already e-mailed if there are some copies left from
the Nuada journal. It seems like a good fanzine.
Maybe it's me, but why do i want to see The Wickerman
everytime (or listen to the soundtrack, which i'm doing right now), whenever i read an article about The Wickerman?
It's the magic of the Wickerman Jacob!!!

All hail Nuada and Avellenau!
geeeeeeeeez this is really bad!!!!
I have currently found out that I haven't seen much of Mr Lee's movies...even though I've known him since the time I saw the world!!!!!It's amazing!!!!!
Well...Mr Lee has made a lot of movies!!!!!!!
I haven't seen 'The Wicker Man' yet...the last film I saw for Mr Lee was 'Horror Express'... I have been trying to get my hands on 'the GOrgon' & 'The Oblong box'....
Well Dali, You should really watch this movie.
THE WICKERMAN, belongs to Mr.Lee´s Career-Highlights.
His part of Lord Summerisle is one of the best charakters he ever played.

you can order this movie !!!!
But unfortunately you can only pay via credit cards !!!
I looked today for it....
and didn't find it in my local store...
I'll try tomorrow...down in Melbourne city.
I succeeded in finding a biography about MR Lee...I feel quite happy...I'll have to pick it up tomorrow!!!!
Feel free to always post details of books, films & anything about Mr Lee... It makes it easier for me to inquire about... and thus, find.
I still have to watch the Wicker Man...
Wot else would U encourage me to watch for MR Lee?
I have only seen a few... the ones I could get my hand on (ofcourse)
Lots of Love
Well, there so many movies which you should watch.
Maybe I could tell which are my favorite movies with CL:
- Feast at midnight
- Goliath Awaits
- Arabian Adventure
- Safari 3000
- Man with the gold. gun
- Dracula and son
And another favorite of mine is ,House of the long Shadows.....because I think that is the only movie (at least as far as i know) in which the 3 best horror-movie actors were acting together. (Peter Cushing ,Vincent Price and of course Christopher Lee)
(Edited by Steffi at 4:34 pm on Jan. 14, 2001)
While House of the Long Shadows is technically the only film where the 3 acted together in one scene, all 3 actors did appear in Scream and Scream Again, although Peter Cushing had no scenes with Mr. Lee or Vincent Price. Mr. Lee and Mr. Price on the other hand have a rousing finale sequence together.
A best bet for good viewing are both The Three Musketeers and The Four Musketeers. Two of my all-time favourite films so I may be biased. No Cushing or Price of course, but you do get the added joy of watching the late great Oliver Reed in one of his best roles.
Mr. Lee also has solid roles, that I quite enjoyed, in The Devil Ship Pirates, Pirates of Blood River, The Gorgon, Horror Hotel, Gormenghast and The Hound of the Baskervilles... just to name a few...the list could go ever on.
It's 9.44Pm and I just came back from a day of searching for MR Lee items!!!!!
I bought one of his DVDs... Dracula Prince of Darkness
ANd it has some really excellent features....
Including Widescreen presentation, Commentary by Mr Lee on the whole movie...almost like as study guide, Behind the scenes footage, a documentary about The WOrld of Hammer, focusing on DRACULA & THE UNDEAD...
It is really good...
but quite expensive!!!!!!
Can't wait till I get my hands on all the others...
Lots of Love....
Besides.... I have not seen any of the movies you suggested...
BUt thank-you for all those titles...
they will bring me pleasure..
Lots of Love
FYI- For those of you who liked Edward Woodward in The Wicker Man, check out the work of his son! His son is Peter Woodward and he has appeared in various productions. He was recently in THE PATRIOT and will be the host of a History Channel documentary on Egypt sometime in 2001. Behind the scenes, he is best known for his talents as a fight coordinator. Check him out!
That's right, Wendy, Peter Woodward played Lord Cornwallis' foppish aide-de-camp in THE PATRIOT. He does a great eighteenth century sneer.
I saw the Wicker Man yesterday...and am still recovering from the experience...
the only response I can say now... I love it!!!!!
And it looks like I'm a Pagan!!!!!
I went through the Wicker Man Site and was very interested with the contents. Can't wait to purchase the book!!!!
I'd love to own the soundtrack.
hmmmm, now I know wot all this enthusiasm is about...The WIcker Man trully captured my mind, body & soul. It has this mystical power, It is a 'natural' film.
And I am more than happy to read more articles about it.
Mr Lee has made an escellent role,...
I especially love the Pagan ideas & insights.
The dancing, the singing, the art...
The WIcker Man is indeed, a MAster piece.
I'd like to give my response concerning the apocalyptical & purely aphrodisiac film... 'The WIcker Man'...
I found the movie quite intense and exquisite. The atmosphere is one which puts you in a trance of unison and fraternity. It is a turmoil of melancolie, a celebration of a beautiful absurdity, yet a deep reality.
It is a dream within a dream...
The plot was impeccable, the acting was immense. I was especially moved by Willow when she dances... Beyond the seduction comes a surrealistic state of existence...
A celestial dance which makes sexuality divine and infinite... Where nudity teaches one of virtue.
A lost innocense found again...
A symbolical ritual of love...
'The Wicker Man' holds a certain freedom, where nature is the passion...
The exotic worship of the Sun, the moon,..
It is indeed, like making love with the ultimate phallic of nature, a celebration of pure ecstasy.
The movie lays down many thoughts before the setting sun...
I also took great interest in the themes behind 'The Wicker Man'...
Lord Summerisle is played by Mr Lee gloriously and elegantly... I love his majestic singing, and his artful dancing...
I loved the ending of the film.
I highly rcommend this film...and think that overall, this movie is at its mortal & immortal best.
The movie has the ability to unveil the cluttered thoughts, feelings & sentiments which lie deep within humanity.
The feeling that 'The Wicker Man' gave me, is the feeling I expect to perceive somehow, throughout death. Where my libido will demand for an infinite orgasm which will annihilate me willingly...with utmost pleasure.
When humanity reach to a climax, they will instinctively set the Wicker Man on fire...
chanting & dancing about...
For in return, Liberty shall come.
Forgive me for my passion...
with sincere love & respect...
