I was wondering whether to get "In the Beginning", "Around the World in 80 Days" and "Ivanhoe" on DVD. Anyone see these? I know Mr. Lee's in them, but how big are his roles? Worth getting?

I have "In the Beginning" or " La Terre Promise"
Christopher Lee plays the Pharaoh of Egypt.
Not in there for to long but he has a few lines to say.

Can't remember about "80 Day" been a while since I have seen it.
Not seen "Ivanhoe"

I think Christopher Lee has a rather small role in "Around the World in 80 Days", but I haven't seen all of it so I can't tell you for sure...

Ivanhoe is magnificent - but Mr Lee doesn't have a huge part in it. He plays this sort of head priest of the Templar Knights (can't remember which order) and he's there for a large part of one episode and a bit of another, but that's more or less it. He's really scary too...

(If you like mediaeval period drama, you won't regret getting this version of Ivanhoe - can't recommend it highly enough Smile )

Mr.Lee as a Templar Knight in "Ivanhoe"?! I'm going to buy this, no matter how small his role is! Thanks!

Mmmm... hope you like it! I haven't seen it since it was broadcast in 1997. But it is well ace...

BTW anyone see Mr Lee in "The New Adventures of Robin Hood" or whatever it was called? I was totally stunned to see him in that, although it was more of a cameo role. He definitely outclassed the rest of the production simply by being in the title sequence...
