The death of a legend.
No one was more frightening as Dracula. He was wonderful as Rochefort, was a Bond villain with three nipples, was a Sith (of course), and was the perfect actor to play Tolkien's Saruman the White in The Lord of the Rings. War hero, singer with an operatic range, swordsman. Now he's in Heaven, no doubt greeted at the Pearly Gates by his beloved friend Peter Cushing.
Rest in Peace, Sir Christopher. Thanks for all the movie memories.
