Book Description

5 July 2010
Peter Cushing remains one of Britain s best-loved film stars. Famous worldwide as Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars, Sherlock Holmes and the big screen Doctor Who, it is though for his performances in Hammer horror films that he is most fondly remembered. In 'Past Forgetting' Cushing tells the story of those two decades with Hammer and beyond, from his defining portrayals of Frankenstein and Van Helsing, to his experiences working alongside such greats as Laurence Olivier and Morecambe and Wise; to the love and loss of his wife Helen. Originally released in 1988, Cushing s own reading of 'Past Forgetting' has long been out of print. Now for the first time on CD, this edition features a bonus documentary featuring some of those who worked with Cushing, and new sleeve notes by The League of Gentlemen s Mark Gatiss.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Gentle Man 7 Dec 2010
Audio autobiographies are an incredible journey into the life of the narrator, and a glorious momento of that persons experiences. But when it comes to someone who is, sadly, no longer with us it feels that much more special. And this is the case with Peter Cushing`s Past Forgetting. It is at times heartbreaking and uplifting, a story of the rise to international stardom and the loss of his wife, of life-long friendships and iconic movies. All delivered with beautifully measured charm and intelligence, and with that most distinct of voices.

The product is classily produced with a selection of photographs and an introduction from Mark Gatiss for the booklet. The mini-documentary that ends the reading is, again, a testament to the love, affection, appreciation and respect for Cushing as a man and an actor.

To me he will always be an inspiration, a memory of happy times and a true legend. Long may his memory never be forgotten.

Overall: Wonderful!

Thank you Mr. Cushing.

5.0 out of 5 stars CUSHING BY CUSHING 10 Nov 2010
Peter Cushing recalls salient and influential incidents of his life and career. For Cushing afficionados it's invaluable. For others it's packed with anecdotes and interesting insights that are always entertaining. The actor's impeccably trained tones are used to good effect as he is effectivley playing himself and appears to be enjoying himself despite the underlying saddness that was always with him after the death of his beloved wife Helen

5.0 out of 5 stars An English Gentleman 9 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
I love Peter Cushing. He is a pure English Gentleman. Whether he is Doctor Who or Grand Moff Tarkin from Star Wars, this caliber of Actor is sorely missing from the world of film and television today.
This CD, transfered from the Original tapes, sound better due to the nature of the quality. I am glad the quality has not been cleaned up. This quiet man who made such an impact on the big screen with his clear cut voice, his sometimes sinister, sometime grandfatherly look can take you to the edge of your seat and back again and his memories come over extremely well.
