July 1, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Torn from the pages of history – the truth about the man who turned men into killers and women into animals! Well, maybe not directly from the pages of history, but from Hammer comes 1966’s Rasputin: The Mad Monk starring Sir Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley and Richard Pasco. The film was directed by Don Sharp and written by Anthony Hinds.

Here at 1951 Down Place we chose this film to honor the passing of the great Sir Christopher Lee. Along the way, Casey, Derek and Scott will talk about what Mr. Lee means to them and to the entertainment world as they discuss their first viewing of the Mad Monk’s sermon. Do they think this film is a small sin or is it a sin worth forgiving? Find out in this episode!

Note: The film originally scheduled for June 2015, Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb will be featured on a future episode of 1951 Down Place.
