Hi. I have seen most of Mr. Lee's Dracula films, LOTR, and ATOC, but there are still many of his films that I haven't seen. Can anyone give me some suggestions of some Christopher Lee movies that I could watch? I want and try to eventually see every movie he ever made but that may take some time. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks guys!

Well. . . The Wicker Man, The Man with the Golden Gun, and The Three Musketeeers series are must-sees for any CL fan. After that, for a change of pace, check out one of my all time personal favorites: Serial, a satire on the California life-style featuring Mr. Lee as a stolid businesman by day, hell-raisin' gay biker by night!

On. . . and of course, Curse of Frankenstein -- which is my favorite of the Hammer films, far and above the Dracula series. Here you can see CL as a master of mime. Watch for the scene where CL makes the Creature silently express emotions of fear, shame, and vanity all with the turn of a head.

Cool, thanks Alfonso. I will definitely check out those films. I have wanted to see the Wicker Man for a while, but just haven't rented it yet. Also, that one where Christopher Lee plays a gay biker sounds interesting, I had no idea he was in that movie. Thanks again for the suggestions!

yea if ya can get your self a copy of A FEAST At Midnight U should go ahead an buy it or if ya can't do that than rent that. that is indeed a wonderful little film. i didn't like Return of Captain Inivincible but C.Lee does do a great song at the end of the movie! it's a musical if ya never heard of it. an The Stupid's was so bad i think that i coudn't finish watching it ! i accidently taped over it when i taped it off TV a couple yrs ago so i didn't get 2 see all of it. an Serial i haven't seen yet. but this is just what i think you might like them. anywys The Whip And The Body is a good one also. so is THE Skull. SHE wasn't bad i don't really remember that one. Castle of the walking Dead wasn't that bad either. but i saw the short version. which had about 15 min. or so cut ouf of it. but as for collecting i do have Capt. Invinsible on dvd. an i prolly will sooner or later get the others on dvd when they come out on it.

ya gotta go with the big 3. Having alrady seen Dracula Curse of Frankenstien and The Mummy are the best choices to see next. After that the Devil RIdes Out is one of his best performances and a great ,great film. If your a horror fan i would stick to the genre and see those films first. Then films like Rasputin, Wicker Man ,the Muskateers, Man with the Golden Gun and Private life of Sherlock Holmes are all great films with great performances. You cant go wrong with any of these films

Oh my i forgot Horror Express!!!! A Must see ..a great underated classic horror film

Other than the ones you have already mentioned, I would recommend the following in no particular order:

A Feast at Midnight
The Curse of Frankenstein
The Devil Rides Out
Horror Express
Horror Hotel
Hound of Baskervilles
I, Monster
The Man With the Golden Gun
The Mummy
The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes
Rasputin: Mad Monk
Three Musketeers & Four Musketeers (they're both good)
The Wicker Man

If you are able, you should really try to see Jinnah. I can't really recommend it because I have never seen it, but it is supposed to be one of his all-time best. Also, I almost added The Whip & the Body to the list because it is a pretty good movie, but I still can't come to terms with the fact that they dubbed over Mr. Lee's distinctive voice. It would have been better if they hadn't, but it is still worth watching. Hope this helps!
