Only now does it occur to me... THE WICKER MAN

Only now does it occur to me... that perennial recording artist Cher is clearly Christopher Lee's spirit animal.

(As evidenced by these screencaps from the pagan revelries at the heart of THE WICKER MAN and THE SONNY AND CHER COMEDY HOUR.)

It's even more astonishing that this attachment was not confined to the 1970s. In fact, late '90s "Believe"-era Cher exerted a notable influence on THE LORD OF THE RINGS.

Is it any wonder that both went on to inspire macabre vintage toys?

Feel free to debate the cultural (and cosmological) significance in the comments section.
