Candid Cushing: PARK LIFE: I think if you were taking a leisurely walk in your local park, and you happened to see this figure strolling along, even from a distance...you could see this no ordinary gentleman. Hat at a cheeky angle, umbrella swinging in time with his gait, there is no one else this COULD be. Peter Cushing takes a stroll in the park, circa 1986.
A colour shot, taken the same day, minus the hat! These photographs were part of a photo-session for the Mail on Sunday newspaper. The shot above, I believe was also used for one of the many reprints of Peter's autobiography in paper back in the USA.
