My Collection of Peter Cushing Films

The "gentle man" of horror who filled the void Boris Karloff left behind bringing a similar grace and dignity, sly wit and quiet menace to his many genre roles.

He played Sherlock Holmes 18 times of which only 7 films remain making him the third most readily identified actor with the part next to Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett.

His portrayals of Baron Frankenstein which he played 7 times (including a cameo in "One More Time") and Professor Van Helsing which he played 5 times are considered definitive by most fright-film enthusiasts and Hammer devotees.

Dr. Who's only big-screen outings were brought to life by Cushing. Although his incarnation of the good Doctor is decidedly non-extraterrestrial but very much human, he twice filled the role ably in films that uphold the virtues of the franchise.

The single most high-profile part for which he is most recognized by multiple generations is as the coldly officious Grand Moff Tarkin in George Lucas' "Star Wars". As the ruthless Moff, he destroys a populated planet without batting an eyelash and even keeps Vader on a short leash.

His shattering portrayal of Winston Smith in George Orwell's "1984" for the BBC was an early career highlight. Other literary roles he played to critical acclaim and/or popular recognition were Russell Thorndike's Rev. Dr. Syn (renamed Rev. Dr. Blyss due to legal wrangling with Disney's rival production) for Hammer's "Captain Clegg" and Edgar Rice Burroughs' Abner Perry for Amicus' "At the Earth's Core".

His most complex villainous role for a character original to the screen was the witch-hunter Gustav Weil in Hammer's "Twins of Evil". His most endearingly sympathetic role for a character original to the screen was the widower Arthur Grimsdyke in Amicus' "Tales from the Crypt".

A mainstay of Hammer Films, Cushing also has the distinction of participating in every Amicus horror anthology film except for "Vault of Horror".

Life-long friend Christopher Lee collaborated with Cushing on an amazing run of 24 films if you include the facts that Lee dubbed an actor in "Alexander the Great" in which Cushing had a role and that they co-narrated the Hammer doc "Flesh and Blood".

Peter Cushing was, by all accounts, a genuinely decent man whose quiet personal pursuits included bird-watching and model-building. He remained steadfastly devoted to the memory of his beloved late wife until he passed away in 1994.

Classically trained, he found himself often in genre fare. However, rather than treating the material with disdain, he elevated even the most impoverished production by playing his parts with a conviction that carried the audience along with him. A consummate professional who, through his work, continues to bring joy to old and new fans alike.
