Happy 89th Birthday to Christopher Lee! Lee played one of our fave 007 baddies of all time, the assassin Francisco Scaramanga (who had great taste in secret lairs, by the way!). Celebrate with some of our fave Christopher Lee performances: The Man With the Golden Gun (1974), The Wicker Man (1973), Horror of Dracula (1958), Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), Gormenghast (2000), and The Avengers episodes Never Say Die (below) and The Interrogators. Amazingly, Lee's co-star in many Hammer Horror productions, Peter Cushing, was born one day earlier on May 26th! Check out their spooky history together at the Hammer Films website here.
