In Honor of Hallowe'en, and a well-deserved knighthood

The incomparable Christopher Lee, who was so integral to making Hammer Horror a genre of its own, and who gained a new career and new audience with the role of Saruman in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, was knighted today, just in time for Hallowe'en.

So, as a Hallowe'en treat, in honor of Sir Christopher, please enjoy one of my favorites among is movies, with his frequent Hammer co-star Peter Cushing.

It's not a Hammer film, but with those stars, and a lot of effort, it's a pretty good approximation. This movie is in the Public Domain, so you can find clearer copies online with minimal effort, and frequently find it on DVD for a dollar! What more could you ask for?

So, guys and ghouls, it is with great pleasure that I give you:
