Having been ill, I managed to miss the fact that Christopher Lee passed away last week. He was in so many great movies, yet the one I always think of first is The Return of Captain Invincible (1983), a film that is pretty terrible even by cult movie standards, but was blessed with a few terrific songs contributed by Richard O'Brien and Richard Hartley of Rocky Horror Picture Show fame. I have such fond memories of watching it on grainy VHS tape with my RHPS friends, talking back and singing along.

Perhaps not what he'd have chosen to be remembered for, but it still makes me smile every time.
