Posted in Art & Society, Movies by Pam Keesey on October 30, 2009

This just in! Christopher Lee was knighted by Prince Charles in a ceremony eariler today. Remembered fondly by many for his role in many classic Hammer Horror films, he was discovered by a new audience in his roles in Tim Burton’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and the soon-to-be-released Alice in Wonderland, as well as his role as Saruman in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. Look for him in the first Hammer film to be released in more than 30 years, The Resident, co-starring Hilary Swank.
