A light-weight and enjoyable, though thankfully never obsequious documentary
6 June 2002 | by (Leicestershire, England) – See all my reviews

Said Cushing in a 1966 interview ''You have to have a great ego to want to play 'Hamlet' all the time and I just haven't got that ego'' - and this light-weight, enjoyable and thankfully never enjoayable feature-length documentary, on his life, proves such a sentiment. Cushing, avuncular and self-effacing, is interviewed by an occassionallly annoying Vosburgh in this description of his career from his days on stage in England, through 1940's Hollywood, his successes on tv, Hammer and his meditations on the after-life. Thankfully Cushing effortlesses rises above the very cinematic forays that made him internationally famous (Including Hammer productions that he appeared in during the 60's and 70' that became anacronystic with time - but never quite fashionably ironic) and showcases his life in an excellent anacdotal fashion.
