Lent Day 39 "The Wicker Man" - standing tall after 40 years. - CinemaDave

Mar. 23rd, 2013 11:06 am Lent Day 39 "The Wicker Man" - standing tall after 40 years.

To preserve the impact of pity and fear, it is best
not to know much about the original **The Wicker Man**
before seeing it. It is safe to say that the film
stars Edward Woodward, Britt Ekland, Diane Cilento,
Ingrid Pitt and Christopher Lee as Lord Summerisle,
a charming baritone in love with his culture.

The
late Paul Giovani provided a musical score gleaned
from the wicca oral traditions. The butcher, the
baker and the candlestick maker put in appearances
and give the film a satirical and stereotypical tone,
much like Pinnochio join the circus and watching
his playmates become donkeys – you can party all you
want, but sometimes there are dues to pay in the morning.

Sir Christopher Lee lost money making "The Wicker Man,"
but it is the film he is proud to be associated with.
