Christopher Lee the preordained Dracula!!
16 March 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

To cinema's study it is an valuable documentary hosted by Oliver Reed over the immortal Dracula's Christopher Lee on Hammer, he telling to us that was invited by a friend to be an actor, he went to an producer to make an appointment and was contracted right way, but when went make a contract someone sneered him, so Lee that was a bit hesitant over such bad comment faces the challenge to proves its worth, his tallness was a key factor to takes a role on "The Mummy" after a little appearances on previous ones, until to reachs on the top as Dracula, after this point all is history....
