One brings honour and one brings shame to the name

<  One brings honour and one brings shame to the name

Do other horror fans feel this way? It troubles me that someone with the name Christopher Lee behaved in such a loutish manner and had to resign in disgrace from his post as a Republican congressman.

Meanwhile Sir Christopher Lee is rightly being honored for his lifetime of accomplishments.

Sir Christopher Lee will receive the prestigious Bafta Fellowship at the academy’s film awards on Sunday. In a career as varied as it is long, the 88-year-old is still probably best remembered for his title role in the 1958 film Dracula, one of many Hammer Horror films in which he starred.

Steven Spielberg, Elizabeth Taylor, Sean Connery, John Barry and Stanley Kubrick are among those who have previously been honoured with the fellowship.

Sir Christopher said: “It’s avery unexpected but very great honour to find myself in such distinguished company to receive the fellowship.”
