From the first issue of Movie Monsters, published in December of 1974, comes an indepth look at Christopher Lee's Dracula films for Hammer. I was 16 when I bought this, and it figures in my good memories of the time as I picked it up at the drugstore down the street from my Grandma's house in Macon, Ga.
The Dracula films are among my favorites to come out of the Hammer studio, and Lee was, in my opinion, the best actor to ever portray the Count. Hope you enjoy this article!
I wonder if they ever noticed that they misspelled his name in the article title! That was a "d'oh!" moment, I'm sure.
Born in the late 50's, a kid in the 60's, a teen in the 70's, I'm "forever-fourteen." Monsters, spooky stuff, sci-fi and Star Trek captured my imagination as a youth and the memories made will never fade. The profile photo symbolizes the efforts of my stepdad to rid me of my "childish" interests, as he called them; at which, not being a man of strong imagination, he failed.
