Product description


"Films, stage and television... it's all covered in David Miller's excellent companion which details Cushing's 60-year career." (Total Film) "Growing up I loved Dracula, I was such a fan of Peter Cushing in that. All my friends wanted to be Christopher Lee and I wanted to be Peter Cushing." --Daniel Radcliffe

"You just can t ask for better from a book like this." --SciFi FX

"it s a fascinating and insanely detailed look at a beloved genre actor s career, and worth picking up for horror fans or those looking for details on British science fiction film, both well known and obscure." --Uproxx review

"A fine service to Cushing's fans but also to the man himself." --Flixist review

"Miller does a superb job taking readers through Cushing s career...a must for Cushing, Hammer and British film buffs in general." --Film Score Monthly

"There s a real sincerity and a self-deprecating grace to Peter Cushing that gives his writing the feeling of a very personal admission... 100 years on from his birth and we ve never felt closer to the gentle man of horror." --Sci-Fi Now
