The last project completed by Peter Cushing before his death in August 1994,and his final collaboration with Christopher Lee (the recording took place on May 17,1994). After the taping, they enjoyed some private time viewing their favorite funny cartoons. Their credit on screen simply reads "Narrated by Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee." See more »
I found this documentary to be very interesting. Although most of the clips from the Hammer films were in the format of theatrical trailers (due to actual film clips being too expensive), I found that there was enough of a mix of interviews and clips to keep most people happy. The narration was good (as you would expect from Peter Cushing & Christopher Lee) but was also tinged with sadness, as when it was shown in the UK (on consecutive Saturday evenings) Peter Cushing died before the second part was shown. It can truly be seen as his swansong for Hammer, for whom he made so many classic films.
