A True Gentle Man,
This review is from: Peter Cushing: Past Forgetting (Audio CD)
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.
Thank you Mr. Cushing.

What a lovely, affectionate review. I think Peter Cushing is one of those people who evokes an aura of kindness and gentleness, I'm not surprised his colleagues thought so highly of him.
