Lee played in several movies and TV specials. One of his finest roles was as Dual Metters in the unsuccessful MGM/UA film 'The moonshine war' (US, 1970) based on an Elmore Leonard novel.

The movie was directed by Richard Quine. The cast consists a.o. of Richard Widmark, Patrick McGoohan, Alan Alda and Will Geer.

In this comedy drama set during the late Prohibition era, a federal agent attempts to make some real money before the alcohol ban is lifted. He sets his sights on the whiskey cache of an old army buddy, but just before they strike a deal, two ex-convicts frighten the buddy away. The creeps then murder the town sheriff and his deputy and begin looking to get a hold of the moonshine. The agent decides to help his friend defeat the thugs. One of the crooks ends up killing the agent and taking four locals hostage. In exchange for their lives, he wants all the whiskey. The moonshiner acquiesces and tells him that the booze is stashed in a graveyard. The greedy crook races off and begins digging. Unfortunately instead of hooch, he finds dynamite and blows himself up. To celebrate his death and the end of Prohibition, the town decides to have a blow-out of their own. Naturally the buddy provides the booze.' (Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide) Some photos of scenes have been placed on this page. In Germany the film was synchronized in German and got as title 'Whisky Krieg' or 'Whisky Brutal'.
