Nikolas Schreck conceived of and produced Sir Christopher Lee’s first musical album Christopher Lee Sings Devils, Rogues and Other Villains.  Lee narrated the audio tour for Nikolas and Zeena Schreck’s Hellhouse of Hollywood wax museum and also accepted the role of Sir Henry Irving in a proposed film about the life of Bram Stoker which Nikolas intended to direct from his own screenplay for the 100th anniversary of the novel Dracula in 1998.  Below, in honor of Sir Christopher’s passing, are some mementos of Sir Christopher’s collaboration and friendship with Nikolas from our archive.
