Alan,

Many thanks for your kind words. It was quite an involved review to put together hence the review being rather long.

Sir Christopher Lee is with us no more but he will always be remembered (Particularly amongst this fraternity). He has played many great film roles such as Dracula, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Star Wars and The Wicker Man amongst others but in my mind he will always be 'The Duke de Richleau' . Th...
