LEE-A-THON MOVIE OF THE DAY NO. 27
RASPUTIN THE MAD MONK! Filmed concurrently with DRACULA, PRINCE OF DARKNESS, Hammer puts Christopher Lee in the role of the eponymous odd historical figure who was notoriously hard to kill. Perhaps the best aspect of the DVD release of this film is the commentary track in which Christopher Lee regales the rest of the assembled cast with the TRUE story of the murder of Rasputin as told to him by someone closely connected with the historical events. Raconteur Lee at his finest!
