Arise, Sir Triple-Nippled Vampy-Wizard of Summerisle:

And about time too...

"Christopher Lee, best known for playing Count Dracula and starring in Lord Of The Rings, has been knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honours list."

What took you so long, Big Liz? Alan Sugar's had a knighthood for approximately 400 years, and what's he done, except peddle sketchy stereos, look like a badly-pickled walnut and shout 'bladdy' at MBA-clones? The only question is, of course; when Sir Vlad gets knighted, who is going to bow to whom? As any fule kno, Lord Summerisle is the posher of the two...

Now, I could fill an encyclopedia with the many, many, MANY faces of Sir C of Lee, but here are a few less-seen ones (thx Google Image Search!)

I have this very book myself...

Family Reunion, from House of Long Shadows (not quite sure where John Carradine's got to, though...)

Um...yes...well...The audition for Crimes of Passion went well, but in the end Ken Russell decided to go with Kathleen Turner after all; will posterity prove him wrong? No; not at all.
