Cover Notes:

 

The story of the man behind some of cinema's most terrifying villains and creatures of the dark, only a part of his fifty-year film career.

 

From the modern world of James Bond in The Man With the Golden Gun, through the swashbuckling era of the Three Musketeers, to the mysterious laird of the Scottish island at the center of The Wicker Man, Christopher Lee has been associated in filmgoers' minds as the face of villiany across the decades. His appearances as Count Dracula - and related roles of dark fantasy and gothic menace - are few, yet his is the name that people recall as the quintessential vampire.

 

Due in part to his Italian ancestry, which gave him an eroticisim not seen in post-war British films, and coming from a strong military background, Christopher Lee has always played roles that underlined his stature and emphasized his extraordinary presence. His memoirs - published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the publication of Dracula - cover all of his working life. Witty, anecdotal and entertaining, they reveal a side to his character that many of his fans will be delighted to encounter.
