Hi Everyone,

I don't know how accurate the information is; however.........I came upon a Film Festival in the Czech Rebublic that lists Mr. Lee as one of the guests. The 43rd Karlovy Vary International film festival runs from 4 to 12 July.

A related article states that Mr. Lee will be introducing his 'legendary' film Dracula on the 12th.

If you have the time and are interested, here are the links:

Cheers, Wink

Re: Karlovy Vary International Film Festival

Many thanks for providing these details. Dracula is my favourite Hammer Dracula film being the closest to the book by Bram Stoker.

Juan, You are absolutely right! I could have sworn I saw it in the daily link...I am sorry to all.....

However the following is taken from Variety; Link follows........

Thank You for pointing that out!

"British actor Christopher Lee will also be in town to present a Midnight Screening’s showing of his classic horror film “Dracula” as will director and cameraman Nicolas Roeg, who will personally present the festival’s retrospective of his films."

Although, it still begs the question...My earlier statement, as to the accuracy of the report!

Cheers, Wink
Helen

just a note: See this link to see that 'Dracula' is the film showing:::Karlovy Vary International Film Festival | Film Selection 2007

Even though the link shows 2007, the selection is for 2008..........

Re: Karlovy Vary International Film Festival

Various websites have nice photos from the event, from Mr. Lee's arrival and the "master class" event he attended.
You can find them on GettyImages.com , on the festivals website (Karlovy Vary International Film Festival | News) as well as some czech sites.

Here are some very nice pictures and a video (in czech):

Re: Karlovy Vary International Film Festival

Thanks for the link, Steve. A very good interview by Mr. Lee, who was as courteous as ever.

Mind you, what was the interviewer doing calling The Wicker Man a Hammer film?

Re: Karlovy Vary International Film Festival

Thank you for that wonderful clip Steve. I guess the reporter might have been nervous and just made a small misstake calling it a Hammer film. Or he didn't make the research. Where abouts in Switzerland do you live Steve?.

Thanks for those links Xenie, great photo's of Mr Lee. You are a very lucky young lady, and I envy you. I have yet to meet him. I am hoping he will be appearing some where in the UK soon, preferably up north.
Thanks again.
