A Celebration of Peter Cushing | A 300-page love letter to the Gentleman of Horror
From the team behind 70s Monster Memories, Unsung Horrors and We Belong Dead magazine, comes this 300-page love letter to the Gentleman of Horror, Peter Cushing.
Featuring contributions from a global roster of established writers and dedicated fans – A Celebration of Peter Cushing covers the versatile actor’s most famous roles, including the Baron in Hammer’s Frankenstein series and Van Helsing in the studio’s Dracula franchise, as well as his portrayals as Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Who and Star Wars’ Grand Moff Tarkin, plus his memorable roles in a host of genre hits – and misses. There are also lots of chapters dedicated to Cushing’s legacy, in print, on stage, radio and vinyl, and in art; as well as features on his hobbies and his muse, his beloved wife Helen.
A true labour of love, gorgeously designed (with a retro eye) with full colour spreads boasting fantastic photos, posters and lobby cards; a foreward from Hammer scream queen-turned-artist Veronica Carlon; an interview with Cushing’s personal secretary Joyce Broughton; and an archival one from the great man himself, this another must-have for any serious film buff.
