I only ever saw the very first one, Horror of Dracula, and was disappointed with how few lines he actually had. He has so few lines I was able to easily do a word count, and Christopher Lee speaks exactly 238 words. When I learned that he had even fewer lines than that in his subsequent Dracula films, I wasn't even interested in watching them at all. He did three Dracula movies in all, I think.

Well, I don't think Dracula would have been a chatty man. But of course Lee appeared in a number of different films - he wasn't just a Dracula specialist.

Indeed not! I can't seem to remember how I viewed him before the Lord of the Rings trilogy, though. I think he was known pretty much as a B-movie actor, and maybe many would have known him first and foremost as Dracula from the Hammer movies. I think I knew him mainly as Scaramanga from Man With the Golden Gun. But things changed dramatically after his splendid portrayal of Saruman, for which he was justly acclaimed - then suddenly he became famous for just about everything he had done. Including this:

This week I have been mostly reading Satan Burger by Carlton Mellick III and THE ONE SAFE PLACE by Ramsey Campbell.

Just a bit of Christopher Lee info.

Concerning Dracula, Lee starred in:

Dracula (1958)
Dracula: Prince Of Darkness (1966)
Dracula Has Risen From The Grave (1968)
Count Dracula (1968)
Taste The Blood Of Dracula (1970)
Scars Of Dracula (1970)
Dracula AD 1972 (1972)
The Satanic Rites Of Dracula (1973)

And a ‘comedy’ called Dracula And Son (1976)

My interest in him is through Sherlock Holmes. He played Holmes in:

Sherlock Holmes And The Deadly Necklace (1962)
Sherlock Holmes And The Leading Lady (1991)
Sherlock Holmes And The Incident At Victoria Falls (1992)

In 1959 he played Sir Henry Baskerville along side Peter Cushing as Holmes.
And in 1970 he played Mycroft Holmes in The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes.

He also lent his voice to a few heavy metal albums and also did a bit of singing.
