Last Sunday, 93-year-old award-winning actor Sir Christopher Lee passed away. Lee—whose most recent notable roles include Saruman in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the voice of Count Dooku in the Star Wars films—played Count Dracula in 10 movies, the Bond villain, Scaramanga, in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), and an uncredited spear carrier in Laurence Olivier’s 1948 production of Hamlet.

After news of his death, Open Culture posted three videos of Edgar Allan Poe stories narrated by Lee: "The Tell Tale Heart," "The Raven," and an animated adaption of "The Fall of the House of Usher," which is part of the animated Poe anthology, Extraordinary Tales, due out this October 30. You can check out all three videos below.
