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 »
The final teaming of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. The first half of the two-hour show was broadcast on the BBC three days before Cushing died of cancer. Producer Michael Carreras died shortly after that. Music was courtesy of Silva Screen Records. Because of time considerations, the program was broadcast on the BBC in a rough-cut form. It was subsequently re-edited for release on videotape in the US. Yet another version has been released on DVD in Japan, the US and Austalia. An expanded, 135 minute version is due to be released in the UK in 1997. See more »
Perhaps no other studio has been linked with the horror genre more so than that of the English Hammer Studio. Flesh and Blood is the story of that studio and its meteoric rise in the late fifties and its crashing demise in the late seventies. The chronicle is related to the audience through the voices of the studio's biggest stars...Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. This was Cushing's last project before his death in 1994, and it is thrilling just to hear him speak of his days of old with Hammer. Christopher Lee adds more insights into his films and about those people that worked in front and behind the camera. Among those interviewed are Hammer starlets Raquel Welch, Veronica Carlson, Ingrid Pitt, delicious Hazel Court, and Caroline Munro, Hammer producers and directors Anthony Hinds, Michael Carreras, Jimmy Sangster, Freddie Francis, and Val Guest, and other notables such as actor Andrew Keir. This documentary starts out with the studio's success with the Quatermass movies and then spends a good amount of time going over the breakthrough film The Curse of Frankenstein and its sequels and then The Horror of Dracula and its sequels. Ted Newsom certainly has done a great job with this definitive story of the House that Hammer Built!
