#TBT : VINTAGE PETER CUSHING FROM HOLLYWOOD CLIP

#THROWBACKTHURSDAY , Peter Cushing's role in this light sentimental drama was overlooked by audiences and critics. Here again Cushing does much with a small role. Supporting stars, Tim Holt and Virginia Gilmore. LADDIE was one of several films that Cushing appeared in during his stay in Hollywood. 

It is believed he also screen tested for a role in Gene Towne and Graham Baker's version of 'Tom Brown's School Days', It's not clear if he actually got the role, shoot hos scenes or was rejected, as he is absent from the 1940 release. During this time Cushing also appeared in 'The Man In The Iron Mask' and 'They Dare Not Love' directed by James Whale, 'Vigil In The Night' (1939) with Carole Lombard, Brian Aherne and Anne Shirley, 'The Howards of Virginia' (1940) and 'A Chump at Oxford' with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in 1939.
