R.I.P. Sir Christopher Lee. One of the most memorable actors in screen history, from bit player to screen icon, Sir Christopher always shone brightly. (b. Christopher Frank Carandini Lee; May 27, 1922 - June 7, 2015)
We don’t always get the kind of work we want, but we always have a choice of whether to do it with good grace or not.” - Christopher Lee

“They’re young, they’re in love and they kill people.” was the effective publicity line of this most stylish and uncompromising of gangster pictures based on a true story. In this film, the bank robbers are portrayed as heroic and romantic-star-crosses-lovers caught up in a whirl of violence and passion, meticulously evoked by posed photographes in sepia. The black comedy moves inevitably toward the much imitated ending in slow motion-the pair die in a hail of bullets.
