"Christopher Lee: Dracula" article from 1974

(Click on images to enlarge.)

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.

Thanks for sharing this. I completely agree with you. Love the Hammer films and I no matter what role he is playing....I always see him as my favorite Count. :)

Thanks for commenting! I love seeing Lee on screen, and Peter Cushing also. When they are in the same movie, it's like peanut butter and chocolate; great together!
