TENDRE DRACULA: EURO POSTER: PETER CUSHING AS MACGREGOR.


PETER CUSHING: HAMLET : (1948)


Peter Cushing as the sinister Beau Brummell of the Danish Court 'Osric' with Terence Morgan as 'Laertes' in HAMLET (1948) directed by Laurence Olivier. Peter's brother-in-law Reginald Beck (who had edited Olivier's HENRY V) was associate producer.

Cushing said of Olivier: 'When the production started, Larry was a kind, considerate, patient director...but as time went by he became more and more autocratic...towards the end it was 'do it this way, do it that way, and don't argue, goddamit!' '. The film is beautifully shot in B&W and takes obvious visual cues from Orson Welles as well as Universal horror. Cushing also said: 'If Hamlet had been a Hammer film...they'd say 'This is disgusting! Dreadful! All these deaths. Think of the bodies littering the floor!' ' The film also features great genre actors Patrick Troughton and Niall MacGinnis, and uncredited extra work by Doreen Lawrence (Peter's first love and one-time fiancé), Desmond Llewelyn, Patrick Macnee and Christopher Lee (making this the first film Cushing and Lee ever appeared in together).

PETER CUSHING: THE CUSHING, LUPINO AND HAYWARD FRIENDSHIP


PETER CUSHING: LAUREL AND HARDY : CHUMPS AT OXFORD CONTRACT



Peter Cushing's contract (bearing his signature) with Hal Roach Studios for A CHUMP AT OXFORD (1940) with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. Cushing recalled it was in the evening when they filmed his final scene getting tossed into the pond. Laurel and Hardy personally made sure that every actor who got wet received towels and hot drinks. Cushing was star struck by Laurel and Hardy and would remember them fondly for the rest of his life.

HAMMER FILM PRODUCTIONS: 'CAPTAIN CLEGG' TONGUE IN CHEEK BEHIND THE SCENES PHOTOGRAPH (1962)

A great tongue-in-check photograph taken during the making of Hammer Film productions 'Captain Clegg' aka 'Night Creatures' (1962) starring Peter Cushing. Here we have Patrick Allen as Capt Collier and his Queens Customs men waiting at the bus stop! I think they would have needed something a little faster than a Number ten bus to catch Clegg, Mipps and the 'marsh phantoms'!
