One of my favorite actors of all time. His turn as Dracula if what turned me on to horror and Gothic sorry telling. I could tell you how many hours I watched him and Peter Cushing in Hammer horror films. However it is the oddities of actors from this era that we find in the afterwards and Obits. His time as a soldier in WW2 and his pain for Heavy Metal is just mind boggling. How little he was paid for his early work, as little as £750 for a movie with no additional box office movies. Take the time and read i09 write about him and spend some time looking at his work on IMDB. It is fascinating!
God rest yea talented soul.
