Best Christopher Lee Movies

A list of the best Christopher Lee movies, ranked by the film fans who know him as Dracula, Saruman, and everything in between. Lee's highest grossing movies have earned millions upon millions; he starred in Hammer horror films and mega-franchises like The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. His career spanned almost 70 years, so there's no shortage of credits in the debate over the greatest Christopher Lee movie of all time.

The order of the list is decided by how many votes they receive, so only highly rated movies will be at the top. If you think the best role isn't at the top, then vote it up so it has the chance to become number one. The greatest performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but for the purposes of this list, let's assume they go hand in hand.

This list answers the questions, "What are the best Christopher Lee movies?" and "What are the greatest Christopher Lee roles of all time?"
