R.I.P. Christopher Lee (1922 - 2015)

If you are of a certain age, you probably think of Christopher Lee as Dracula from the Hammer
horror movies of the 1950's and 60's, with bloody fangs and red crazy eyes. If you are younger, then more likely you will identify him as Saruman the white, Tolkein's "good wizard gone bad" in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movie series.

Mr Lee passed away on June 7th at the grand age of 93, and leaves behind a great legacy of cultural touchstones and a huge movie catalog. From all accounts he lived a full and varied life, and that's surely a good epitaph for anyone.
