BLOGATHON… Welcome to Day 1 of the Christopher Lee Blogathon

 

It’s finally here! Celebrating the acting career of Christopher Lee…

 

Yay, join me and Barry for the next few days with an abundance of Christopher Lee tributes.

 

 

It was only a few months ago that Barry from Cinematic Catharsis asked me about holding a tribute to Christopher Lee. I agreed immediately as I’ve always loved this actor in the movies as a good guy but usually a bad guy. This British actor would have been 99 years old this year, so in theory, this a centenary blogathon if you count 0 days to 364 days.

He’s been in many movies, as Dracula in Hammer films such as Dracula AD 1972  (1972) and an embittered husband in the disaster movie Airport 77 (1977) to name just two. He’s starred with everyone from Emma Samms to Joan Collins and Peter Cushing to Joseph Cotten.

Anyway enough of my ramblings, so welcome to the first day of the blogathon. Over the next few days, we are celebrating Christopher Lee in the movies and on TV. So if you are in the mood to join us, and have plans to publish a post on Christopher Lee in the next few days all the details are HERE, and the films chosen so far are HERE. Then just get in touch with Barry and me and once we confirm, that’s you in…

PLEASE NOTE… We aren’t accepting old reviews or duplicates so if you really wanted a certain choice tune in regularly for an announcement of the Hammer and Amicus kind later this year.

So click on the film or TV show title to get to the post… and bloggers expect a comment from me sometime next week on your contribution… and thanks again for joining!!!
