Peter Cushing OBE (26 May 1913 – 11 August 1994)

A few days ago on Saturday 26th May it would have been legendary horror actor Peter Cushing’s birthday. By bizarre coincidence, the very next day saw the birthdate of two other classic horror icons Vincent Price and Christopher Lee. Yesterday we looked back at the horror careers of both Price and Lee so today we remember the fright films of the wonderful English gentleman of horror Peter Cushing.
