I don’t believe I speak only for myself when I say that there are some actors that could literally go on tour and read from random things–and you’d pay good money to hear it. A dictionary, the backs of some cereal boxes, Ikea assembly instructions…some actors, it doesn’t matter. One of those actors is Sir Christopher Lee. And when you up the ante–when you say, “No, nothing random, let’s have him read from Lewis Carroll?” Oh hell yes, please.
This was from 2010 and recorded at the British Library. Based on the poster in the background he no doubt was reading this because he was the voice of the Jabberwock in the most recent Alice in Wonderland film. But you and I know that he’s Christopher Goddamn Lee so he can read whatever he wants. So bring on the Rice Chex ingredients. Tell me I’m wrong.
Day 5 normally kicks off with random stuff. To the point, previous entries have included: the radio show Lights Out, the original Evil Dead trailer, a television adaptation of The Cask of Amontillado and also the trailer for Tales of Terror. And last year, we had some holiday fun with Jack Benny.
