HERE'S A RARE photograph of Peter Cushing and a young Andrew Ray during the rehearsing of the BBC production of Terence Rattigan's 'The Browning Version' broadcast on July 12th 1955. Cushing played school teacher, Andrew Crocker-Harris, Ray - John Taplow.
CUSHING WAS ALSO joined by Michael Gwynn who would play the 'horror interest' in Hammer films, 'The Revenge of Frankenstein' in 1958. Actor George Curzon also appeared in this BBC production... Curzon was best known for the films 'Jamaica Inn' and 'The Man Who Knew Too Much' with Peter Lorre. I wonder if anyone out there knows if George Curzon was related to Cushing's co star in 'Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 AD ' Jill Curzon?.Now wouldn't that be too cool too?
TRIVIA: All In The Family: Andrew Ray was son of UK comedian Ted Ray, his brother was actor and writer, Robin Ray...and he was brother in law to Susan Stranks...she of ITV children's programme of the 1970's, 'Magpie'. Andrew Ray died on August 20, 2003.
