CHRISTOPHER LEE!

Just watched "Horror of Dracula" (starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing) tonight! Love that movie, and so many more of the Hammer horror films. Here's my autographed Christopher Lee "Horror of Dracula" pic. I met Mr. Lee a little over 10 years ago at the old Creature Features store in Burbank, CA. Hope everyone is having a great Halloween season!

SNOOPY MODEL KIT - 1970

Saw this ad on-line today...I had this 1970 Monogram SNOOPY in his Sopwith Camel snap-together model. I believe I got it as a birthday present when I turned 7. I hadn't thought of this model kit in years! Great memories! CURSE YOU, RED BARON! 8^)
