I was just curious, as I ahve heard many stories about the stunts and comic moments either yourself or others have on set, and I was just wondering if there was any one action by yourself, or another individul on a shoot which really stands out, or if you have equal enjoyment on most shoots? Vicky

Dear Vicky,

In the first Dracula film I had to pick up a stuntwoman off the ground and throw her into an open grave. Unfortunately, I lost my balance on the first
take and fell in on top of her. She was quite surprised.

Warmest regards,

Christopher Lee

Mr. Lee,

I read that in your book Lord Of Misrule. I read to my sister, she grinned. I laughed. Your book is interesting. Do you still do some of funny stunts, now? Just curios.

Gutten Tag,
Amber

Pardon me for commenting sir, but didn't Mr. Cushing say something amongst the like of "No Chris, it's not that kind of movie" ? At least, I recall reading, hearing something the like somewhere.

Oh, and Amber, well, Mr. Lee didn't do it but in James Bond: The man with the golden gun, there was this scene where a car had to make a sort spin.
It was very hard to do from what I read and saw in the documentary added with the DVD. I loved that scene!
