Christopher Lee, Vincent Price, John Carradine and the rather gloomy Peter Cushing.
In my google travels, I happened upon this amazing photo of four of the best villains ever to grace the silver screen. (Of course they also made for wonderful good guys too, when they played against type.) In their later years, they were still capable of delivering a chill or two.
Christoper Lee is the only one still with us, but the other three live on in film and vivid memory.
I love this pix. So apropos of nothing, here it is for your movie maven enjoyment.
