I have been a fan of Christopher Lee's movies since a very young age, I startd watching the hammer horrors with Peter Cushing when I was about 8 or 9 and since then I have watched most of them and bought a lot of them. My favourite film of Christopher Lee is The Devil Rides Out, it is a brilliant film, he has contributed so much to the world of film and television.

I have to be cliched and go

I have to be cliched and go with The Lord of the Rings... Saruman was always my favourite character (along with Gandalf) and Wizards fascinated me.  Having Sir Christopher play Saruman was perfect casting.

The Wickerman is not like any other movie I understand about the strange part. I dont think its for everybody. Shell Shock with him and Collin Farrel. No I have not I must find out what it is. Thank you for the recomendation I appcaite it tons. Hope you well like the The Two Towers I have sceen that many times myself. You tube has Jinnha I dont know if all of it is there but Iam pretty sure some of it is. The Resident yes I have sceen it I myself thought it was pretty creepy and good. Have you had the chance to see it?

Yea shell shock is good, Sir Chris plays a spanish psychologist, tis based in Ireland, and i was wondering if he was here to film it ,, fair thick if he was and never went up or anything!

yea the resident is good kinda creepy but enjoyable, shame he was killed off in it !!

i think its great that Sir Chrsitopher who started in hammer jesus well over 50 years ago now is still going strong all those years on, hope he keeps making them,

Our you talking about a movie

Our you talking about a movie called Triage? I think that might be the movie you our talking about sounds right. In the USA Triage is the name. Yes I agree its a shame he was killed of. After 50 yrs I agree and to still be in the bussniess I agree its most wounderfull. So many its hard to keep up with and new movies coming out. Good luck with the you tube.

Ah, The Devil Rides Out -

Ah, The Devil Rides Out - what a marvellous choice as favourite film. Would have to say it's probably mine too. 

Saying that though I do also enjoy Sir Christopher in his swashbuckling roles, such as The Three Musketeers and Devil-Ship Pirates; plus his marvellous duel with Yoda in Star Wars Episode II.

A warm welcome to the site Philip.

Hi,  I have just joined. Firstly, I would like to say that I have seen Mr. Lee twice in "real life".  On the first occasion, he came to a scence fiction & fantasy convention in Los Angeles, and was charm personified, not only to audiences, but to the organisers.  Often convention guests can be a bit of a nightmare backstage! We couldn't persuade Mr. Lee to give us song though!

The second occasion was when I was working on a film set recently as an extra.  I'm going to be very tactful here and not mention the film, but there was a great contrast between the behaviour of Mr. Lee and the director.  The director ordererd that the extras were not to look him in the eye, but to cast our eyes down in his presence.  He said we disturbed his concentration.  We also had to be cleared out of his way, not just when he was working on set, but also when, for example, he was walking down the corridors behind the sets, which were the same route we had to use to access the toilets and the exit from the sets.  So in front of the director would be an AD (assistant director) who would push us out of the way, or open a side door and shove us into a room, before signalling to another AD that the corridor was clear for the  director to walk down.  

By contrast, Mr. Lee smiled and nodded when we had to cross his path to take our place on set, or when we were placed in his vicinity.  He made pleasant remarks to an elderly gentleman extra who was passing by him in the corridor, and was courteous to the young actors with whom he was working.  All the extras wanted to be on set when Mr. Lee was working and whenever he came on set, you could hear this whisper rippling across, "Oh look, there he is!"  No other actor had that same level of respect and admiration.  There were other fine actors in this film, and many of them were as well-mannered as Mr. Lee towards the techies, crew and extras.  But the contrast between Mr. Lee and the self-important director was what we all remarked upon.  Some people just have "class".
