Sorry to see him go, but 93 is a good long life. Also, he enjoyed such a huge resurgence in his career with LOTR and Star Wars after doing so much crap during the 80s it's wonderful that he got to go out in top form.
No disrespect to Lugosi, but I always thought Lee was the superior Dracula; the role I'll remember him for. That one shot of D with his fangs bared and the blood running down his face scared the hell out of me as a kid. Those old Hammer films are so watchable still. He and Cushing were a great team.
Wasn't he a spy or something during the war as well? Not sure.
