And for us "bad" people, the bad side dominates. Although financially successful, it was Hammer's last horror film, and marked the end of Lee's long association with the studio that had a major impact on his career.
Like Cushing, Lee also appeared in horror films for other companies during the year period from to Other films in which Lee performed include the series of Fu Manchu films made between and , in which he starred as the villain in heavy oriental make-up; I, Monster , in which he played Jekyll and Hyde; The Creeping Flesh ; and his personal favourite, The Wicker Man , in which he played Lord Summerisle.
Lee wanted to break free of his image as Dracula and take on more interesting acting roles. He met with screenwriter Anthony Shaffer , and they agreed to work together.
Shaffer had a series of conversations with Hardy, and the two decided that it would be fun to make a horror film centring on "old religion", in sharp contrast to the popular Hammer films of the day.
However, he soon decided that a direct adaptation would not work well, and began to craft a new story, using only the basic outline of the novel.
Lee appeared as the on-screen narrator in Jess Franco 's Eugenie as a favour to producer Harry Alan Towers , unaware that it was softcore pornography, as the sex scenes were shot separately.
I had no idea that was what it was when I agreed to the role. I was told it was about the Marquis de Sade.
I flew out to Spain for one day's work playing the part of a narrator. I had to wear a crimson dinner jacket. There were lots of people behind me.
They all had their clothes on. There didn't seem to be anything peculiar or strange. A friend said: 'Do you know you are in a film in Old Compton Street?
So I crept along there heavily disguised in dark glasses and scarf, and found the cinema and there was my name.
I was furious! There was a huge row. When I had left Spain that day everyone behind me had taken their clothes off! In addition to making films in the United Kingdom, Lee made films in mainland Europe: he appeared in two German films, Count Dracula , where he again played the vampire count, and The Torture Chamber of Dr.
Sadism Lee was a producer of the horror film Nothing But the Night also , in which he also starred. It was the first and last film he ever produced, as he did not enjoy the process.
He was wounded in his left knee during filming, an injury he still felt many years later. Although "killed" in the latter film, he reprised the role in The Return of the Musketeers , with his character given token dialogue explaining that his wound in the earlier film's climactic sword fight wasn't fatal.
After the mids, Lee eschewed horror roles almost entirely. Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond spy novels and Lee's step-cousin, had offered him the role of the titular antagonist in the first Eon-produced Bond film Dr.
No Lee enthusiastically accepted, but by the time Fleming told the producers, they had already chosen Joseph Wiseman for the role.
Lee said of his performance, "In Fleming's novel he's just a West Indian thug, but in the film he's charming, elegant, amusing, lethal I played him like the dark side of Bond.
Because of his filming schedule in Bangkok , film director Ken Russell was unable to sign Lee to play the Specialist in Tommy That role was eventually given to Jack Nicholson.
Years later, Lee met Carpenter, and told him that the biggest regret of his career was not taking the role of Dr.
Lee appeared on the cover of the Wings album Band on the Run , along with others including chat show host Michael Parkinson , singer Kenny Lynch , film actor James Coburn , world boxing champion John Conteh , and broadcaster Clement Freud.
He said in an interview in Peter and Vincent made some wonderful serious movies but are only known for horror. That was why I went to America.
I couldn't see anything happening here except a continuation of what had gone before. His first American film was the disaster film Airport '77 In , Lee surprised many people with his willingness to go along with a joke, by appearing as guest host on NBC's Saturday Night Live.
Barry Rumack finally played by Leslie Nielsen in the disaster spoof Airplane! Lee appeared in The Return of Captain Invincible , a comedy-musical film.
In addition to more than a dozen feature films together for Hammer Films , Amicus Productions , and other companies, Lee and Peter Cushing both appeared in Hamlet and Moulin Rouge , albeit in separate scenes; and in separate instalments of the Star Wars films, Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin in the original film, Lee decades later as Count Dooku.
The last project which united them in person was a documentary, Flesh and Blood: The Hammer Heritage of Horror , which they jointly narrated.
It was the last time they saw each other, as Cushing died two months later. In , while talking about his favourite role in film at a press conference at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival , he declared that his role in Jinnah was by far his best performance.
Lee played Saruman in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy. In the commentary, he stated he had a decades-long dream to play Gandalf , but that he was now too old, and that his physical limitations prevented him from being considered.
The role of Saruman, by contrast, required no horse riding and much less fighting. Lee had met J. Tolkien once making him the only person involved in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy to have done so and made a habit of reading the novels at least once a year.
Tolkien in He did most of the swordplay himself, though a double was required for the long shots with more vigorous footwork.
Lee was one of the favourite actors of Tim Burton , and became a regular in many of Burton's films, working for the director five times, starting in , where he had a small role as the Burgomaster in the film Sleepy Hollow.
In , Lee played Willy Wonka 's strict dentist father, Dr. These songs were recorded, but eventually cut since Burton felt that the songs were too theatrical for the film.
Lee's appearance was completely cut from the film, but Head still had an uncredited one-line cameo. While he only had two lines, Burton said that he felt Lee to be a good match for the iconic character, because of Lee himself being "an iconic guy".
The award was presented by Tony Iommi. In , he appeared in a Hammer film for the first time in thirty-five years, the last being 's To the Devil a Daughter.
Very disappointed, director Robin Hardy recast the role, but Lee was determined to appear in the film, so Hardy wrote a small scene specially for him.
Hardy stated that fans of The Wicker Man would recognise this character as Lord Summerisle,  but Lee contradicted this, stating that they are two unrelated characters.
On 11 January , Lee announced on his website that he would be reprising the role of Saruman for the prequel film The Hobbit. Lee said he worked on his role for the films over the course of four days,  portraying Saruman as a kind and noble if somewhat cantankerous wizard, before his subsequent fall into darkness, as depicted in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.
In , Lee marked his fifth and final collaboration with Tim Burton, by appearing in Burton's film adaptation of the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows , in the small role of a New England fishing captain.
In an interview in August , Lee said that he was "saddened" to hear his friend Johnny Depp considering retirement from acting, noting that he himself had no intention of retiring.
There are frustrations — people who lie to you, people who don't know what they are doing, films that don't turn out the way you had wanted them to — so, yes, I do understand [why Depp would consider retiring].
I always ask myself "well, what else could I do? Making films has never just been a job to me, it's my life. I have some interests outside of acting — I sing and I've written books, for instance — but acting is what keeps me going, it's what I do, it gives life purpose I'm realistic about the amount of work I can get at my age, but I take what I can, even voice-overs and narration.
Lee and others who had played Sherlock Holmes discussed the character and the various interpretations of him. A month before his death, Lee had signed to star with an ensemble cast in the Danish film The 11th.
Lee provided the off-camera voice of "U. Owen", the mysterious host who brings disparate characters together in Agatha Christie 's Ten Little Indians The film was produced by Harry Alan Towers , for whom Lee had worked repeatedly in the s.
Even though he was not credited on the film, his voice is unmistakable. He also provided all the voices for the English dub of Monsieur Hulot's Holiday He contributed with his voice as Death in the animated versions of Terry Pratchett 's Soul Music and Wyrd Sisters , and reprised the role in the Sky1 live action adaptation The Colour of Magic , taking over the role from the late Ian Richardson.
Lee reprised his role as Saruman in the video game The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth along with the other actors of the films.
Tolkien for the audiobook version of the novel. From until , Lee was the host and narrator of "Mystery Theater" which aired on radio worldwide.
Lee introduced American classic radio mystery, sci-fi and detective programs in a series produced, written and directed by Carl Amari.
In , he collaborated again with Tim Burton, this time by voicing the Jabberwocky in Burton's adaptation of Lewis Carroll 's classic book Alice in Wonderland.
Lee's first contact with heavy metal music came by singing a duet with Fabio Lione , lead vocalist of the Italian symphonic power metal band Rhapsody of Fire on the single " The Magic of the Wizard's Dream " from their album Symphony of Enchanted Lands II — The Dark Secret he only performs backing vocals on the album version.
He also worked with Manowar while they were recording a new version of their first album, Battle Hymns. The original voice was done by Orson Welles who was long dead at the time of the re-recording.
In , he bridged two disparate genres of music by performing a heavy metal variation of the Toreador Song from the opera Carmen with the band Inner Terrestrials.
The song was featured on his album Revelation in His first complete metal album was Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross , which was critically acclaimed and awarded with the "Spirit of Metal" award from the Metal Hammer Golden Gods ceremony,  where he described himself as "a young man right at the beginning of his career".
It was released on 15 March On his 90th birthday 27 May , he announced the release of his new single "Let Legend Mark Me as the King" from his upcoming album Charlemagne: The Omens of Death , signifying his move onto "full on" heavy metal, which makes him the oldest performer in the history of the genre.
The record was previously held among living artists by Tony Bennett , who was 85 when he recorded " Body and Soul " with Amy Winehouse in March Louis Armstrong 's " What a Wonderful World " charted when Armstrong would have been 86 years old in , but Armstrong had recorded the song 20 years prior, and was already dead by the time the song became a hit.
Lee was inspired to record the latter songs because, "as far as I am concerned, Don Quixote is the most metal fictional character that I know".
The Herald Angels Sing ". At my age, the most important thing for me is to keep active by doing things that I truly enjoy.
I do not know how long I am going to be around, so every day is a celebration, and I want to share it with my fans.
Being recorded shortly before his death, this marks Lee's final appearance on a musical record.
His painting, by Lawrence, hangs in Windsor Castle. Lee was engaged for a time in the lates to Henriette von Rosen, whom he had met at a nightclub in Stockholm.
Lee had met him some years before while filming Tales of Hans Anderson , where he received his blessing.
He was concerned that his financial insecurity in his chosen profession meant that she "deserved better" than being "pitched into the dishevelled world of an actor".
She understood, and they called the wedding off. Lee relocated to Los Angeles in the s after becoming disillusioned with film roles he was being offered in Britain at the time and stated that in Hollywood "I was no longer a horror star.
I was an actor. His Cadogan Square home was briefly featured in the music video accompanying his cover of My Way from his album Revelation.
Lee supported the Conservative Party. He described Michael Howard as "the ideal person to lead the party" in ,  and also supported William Hague and David Cameron.
Contrary to popular belief, Lee did not have a vast library of occult books. When giving a speech at the University College Dublin on 8 November , he said: "Somebody wrote I have 20, books.
I'd have to live in a bath! I have maybe four or five occult books. Who claimed to be involved with black magic. You will not only lose your mind, you'll lose your soul.
His wife delayed the public announcement until 11 June, to break the news to their family. Following Lee's death, fans, friends, actors, directors and others involved in the film industry publicly gave their personal tributes.
In , accompanied by his wife Birgit, and on the th anniversary of the birth of Bram Stoker , Lee was honoured with a tribute by University College Dublin , and described his honorary life membership of the UCD Law Society as "in some ways as special as the Oscars".

Lee at the Berlin Film Festival in February Belgravia , London, England. Chelsea , London, England. Lee's Dracula is a force of nature: red-eyed, blood dripping from fangs, often in the grip of rage.
He's hypnotic, physically powerful, well-spoken, but Lee also understood — crucially — that an important layer from Bram Stoker's novel had been missing from Lugosi's performance: sexuality.
Lee's Dracula is a rampant sex fiend, using that stare to make buxom ladies everywhere come over a little faint. Main article: Christopher Lee filmography.
