Scenes That I Love: Sgt. Howie meets Lord Summerisle in The Wicker Man


From 1973’s The Wicker Man.

Christopher Lee always cited Lord Summerisle as being his favorite of all the “horror” roles that he played.  Interestingly enough, Lord Summerisle is not a vampire or a mummy or in any way a member of the undead.  He’s just an extremely pragmatic pagan, doing what he has to do preserve his power.

In this scene, Lord Summerisle meets and speaks with Sgt. Howie (Edward Woodward), who is not at all happy with Summerisle’s style of leadership.
