There are two villainous movie roles in which I am particularly eager to se Lee; Fu Manchu and Rasputin, the later one he himself, according to Tall, dark and grusome, consider to be one of the best he did for Hammer films. I know the Fu Manchu-movies have been realeased on dvd and they are available here in Sweden, but are Rasputin also going to be re-realeased?

Re: Fu Manchu and Rasputin

Hi,
I haven't seen it as a single DVD realease, but Rasputin is one of the films included in the The Hammer Horror Box set, which is available through HMV, Amazon etc.
Lots of other interesting films and interviews are in this set as well.

I, personally, ADORE Rasputin. I consider one of the best films and character of Mr. Lee.

I also hope to see " Feast At Midnight", But it would be wonderful to see this with subtitles in Portuguese or Spanish.

Well, now I have the DVD containing The Blood of Fu Manchu and The Castle of Fu Manchu. Firstly, this is definitely B-movies, secondly, there is a surreal feeling about them – but not the feverish hysteria of Sax Rohmer’s novels – and thirdly, they would not really be worth watching if Lee wasn’t in title role. Lee has all the sinister menace needed to play what I consider to be one of popular cultures greatest villains, the oriental mastermind Fu Manchu. A funny thing, Lee is wearing the kind of Mongolic moustache that all the Fu Manchus of the movies have been seen wearing, but Rohmer never said anything about a moustache.
