#CHRISTOPHERLEESATURDAY! Here is a rare and neat photograph taken during the making of Hammer films, 'Dracula Has Risen From The Grave' . .. with co stars Veronica Carlson and Barbara Ewing. Often when shooting, Lee was known not to hang around on set during the Hammer Dracula films... similar to Peter Cushing. So that makes this pic all the more interesting . . and NOT in costume either!
YOU CAN FIND PART ONE OF THAT ABOVE FEATURE : HERE!
SOMEONE WHO HAD quite a few connections with CHRISTOPHER LEE and would have been 105th TODAY is actor THORLEY WALTERS. THORLEY was known for often playing eccentric characters in a variety of different films, and a fair share with both PETER CUSHING and CHRISTOPHER LEE!
