A tribute to Christopher Lee



I was so saddened yesterday to hear of the passing of Christopher Lee. He was one of my all time favorite actors and arguably one of the greatest villains to ever grace the big screen. 

To honor this great man I decided to put together a post featuring some of my favorite characters that he has played throughout the years. Some of my favorites are where he plays a smaller role. Which goes to show that you don't need a huge amount of screen time to make a significant impact.

Christopher Lee Tribute


Saruman the White is a fictional character and a major antagonist in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings. He is leader of the Istari, wizards sent toMiddle-earth in human form by the godlike Valar to challenge Sauron, the main antagonist of the novel, but eventually he desires Sauron's power for himself and tries to take over Middle-earth by force. His schemes feature prominently in the second volume, The Two Towers, and at the end of the third volume, The Return of the King. His earlier history is given briefly in the posthumously published The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales.

Saruman is one of several characters in the book illustrating the corruption of power; his desire for knowledge and order leads to his fall, and he rejects the chance of redemption when it is offered. The name Saruman [ˈsaruman] means "man of skill";[1] he serves as an example of technology and modernity being overthrown by forces more in tune with nature. Saruman is represented by a white hand.

 Christopher plays Willy's intimidating dentist father who fits him with a brace that looks more like a torture device and forbids him from eating any type of candy or chocolate.

Pastor Galswells - The Corpse Bride

Pastor Galswells is a resident of the Land of the Living. The local holy man, he presides over Victor and Victoria's wedding rehearsal, and later over Victoria and Lord Barkis's wedding. He is a stern man with little patience for those who make mistakes (unfortunately for Victor). He is thrown into a state of shock by the arrival of the dead Upstairs, especially when they completely ignore his demand that they not enter his church and instead return to their graves


The Jabberwocky (Jabberwock) - Alice in Wonderland

The Jabberwock  appears as a black dragon, very similar to the original Tenniel illustration, with six limbs: four legs and two wings. It speaks in a low voice, and has a forked, snake-like tongue (it may also have a corresponding Jacobson's organ, from the movements of the tongue in the film), as well as forward-facing red eyes. He also breathes a blast of purple lightning which can even obliterate someone as shown on a White Knight. It is the Red Queen's champion and prepares to fight Alice. It says that the Vorpal Sword is its ancient enemy, hinting that another hero used the vorpal sword before Alice. Alice cuts off its tongue, but counterattacks with a tail swipe. The Jabberwocky gains the upper advantage, butTarrant interferes by poking its tail with his sword which leads the armies in battle. The Jabberwocky chases Alice on ruins. As Alice reaches the top, the Jabberwocky catches up to her, but trips which allows Alice to get on its neck. The Jabberwocky throws Alice into the air, and while Alice is falling, she cuts off its head, killing the beast.
