1974 FM cover article on Christopher Lee

Welcome back! I've been so busy lately, that this blog kind of got neglected. But hopefully I can update it regularly for awhile now. Thanks for hanging around (like a vampire bat.)

From the March 1974 issue #105 of the beloved Famous Monsters, comes a 12 page article and interview with the Prince of Darkness himself, Chris Lee. We start with the awesome cover by the legendary Basil Gogos...

(Click on images to enlarge.)

and the article itself... enjoy!























Bonus: the Lee-as-Dracula cover from issue #84, which, oddly enough, does not feature anything significant about Lee inside; so I thought it would go nicely here. What a great photo, that made a striking cover!

Out of Lugosi and Lee I alaways prefferred Lee's Dracula he could be both charming and vicous which i never thought Lugosi could- that said Lee's Dracula would be nothing if it were not for the obvious insperation he got from Lugosi

I had that issue #105 back in the day. I always preferred the painted Famous Monsters covers over photos. Lee was my favorite Dracula. He had an imposing physical presence that Lugosi lacked.

I have both issues stashed away in the basement. Thanks for printing the article from 105 and saving me the trouble of digging through boxes to find it!
