I don't think 'Fangs' Lee will be leaving this mortal coil for a long time yet. Apart from Bollywood actors, he has appeared in more films than any other living actor. (& more than most dead ones as well!)

I've no reason to doubt The Watcher but other than logging on to IMDB and counting, is there any way to verify his claim? I'm guessing some Hollywood type, like Borgnine or Rooney might be ahead of Lee in terms of the actual number of films.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

I make it, 127 films from his nndb write-up, but his Wiki page says 266.

Recent (February 2013) video here -

Looking his age, but at least he is getting out and about, and he's still working. Indeed, to celebrate his 91st birthday, another heavy metal album has been released, which promises to be 100% heavy metal - http://metro.co.uk/2...rthday-3807091/

However the title is "The Omens of Death"........

Sir Christopher to receive BFI award

Doesn't say when the ceremony is but I hope it is soon judging by the accompanying picture.

If we had put him on the list we could have a trio of Lees : Harper, Stan and Christopher. Maybe next year.

If you count all his TV appearances, from movies over TV series to documentaries, you'll have well over 300. If it is ever possible to show and/or list all of them I don't know, still working on it myself, and it might take me til Lee's age to complete this task!
