After playing Dracula, Saruman, a Mummy, Frankenstein's Monster, the Devil himself, Fu Manchu, Count Dooku, Count Drago, too many Counts to count it seems, has he ever played the good guy?

(Edit, I guess he was Sherlock, and Mycroft once or twice).

       Don't forget he was in all those martial arts films too.

       Sorry Ray, I didn't realize what this post was before I posted my own tribute to him.

       Pretty sure Peter Cushing, one of his old pals (and fellow Star Wars alumnus!), was the one who did Sherlock.

       He definitely played the Good Guy in The Devil Rides Out (q.v.)

       Actually, Lee has played 3 different Doyle characters: Sherlock, Mycroft, and Sir Henry Baskerville.

       Oh shit... I shall have to look that up.

       Surely we can fit tributes to more characters in there. Horns, some bandages dangling, a deerstalker hat, lightsabre and a foil, "Fu Manchu" moustache...

       .. a kilt, a wooden leg, an opera cloak lined with red silk, a stethoscope, a trained ferret, a golden Ankh pendant, and a banjo ...
