“This is the trird time I come to Greece”, said Christopher Lee, the perfect Count Dracula in a series of films, just arrived at “Eleftherios Venizelos” airport from Myconos, where he spend a few days with his wife. “The first time was during World War II, now I come to take part in the Film Festival, where I will present one of my films”. Mr Lee is invited by the big circulation newspaper “Eleftherotypia” for the 14th Panorama of European Cinema, sponsored by them.
Late last night he presented his classic film “The Devil rides out” to a select audiance at the downtown Apollo cinema. There also, on Thursday evening during the closing ceremony of the festival, he will be awarded the Special Panorama Award. I’ll try to go and report for you all.
