THE CHASE IS ON! Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) chases Baron Meinster (David Peel) through the Château Meinster in Hammer films , THE BRIDES OF DRACULA (1960 Fisher)
ANOTHER SLAP! The is nothing more than that the Baron likes to do than make his point, no matter how morally wrong it might be, and his method of employing a slap around the chops, is a ploy he uses often in several Hammer Frankenstein films. He dishes out the back hander in the 1969 FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED , THE EVIL OF FRANKENSTEIN (1964 FRANCIS) and here in THE REVENGE OF FRANKENSTEIN (FISHER 1958) with Francis Matthews, on the receiving end!
BURNING OUT THE BITE! Van Helsing takes to some pretty extreme methods, after falling pray to the vampires kiss, via Baron Meinster in Hammer films, THE BRIDES OF DRACULA (1960 FISHER)
KHARIS COMES KNOCKING! Hmay not be too quick on his padded feet, but he moves with the force of a steam train. Here's an iconic sequence from Hammer films, THE MUMMY (1959 FISHER) when recently risen Kharis, played by Christopher Lee comes knocking on the door of archaeologist and tomb desecrater , John Banning (Peter Cushing). What unfolds is one of the many classic scenes both Cushing and Lee skilfully performed during their 21 films together.
THE CUSHING INDEX FINGER. Not action as such, but an action worthy of mentioning, as it's a gesture that appears in many of Peter Cushing's performances. Known now through out PCAS as a 'CUSHINISM' the using of the index finger, to express 'a point', this one joins a list of other familiar mannerisms such as the 'The Rubbing of the Back of the Neck' and 'The Rolling of the Eyes, and Crossing When Losing Consciousness'!! This one comes from the Tyburn film, THE GHOUL (1975 FRANCIS) with Cushing's performance of the much stress Dr Lawrence.
