#TT : DRACULA'S PAIN IN THE BACK AND CUSHING IN BIOPIC


#‎THROWBACKTHURSDAY‬: PETER CUSHING as Captain Richard Pearson in 'John Paul Jones (1959) also in the cast.. Robert Stack in the title role, Marisa Pavan, Charles Coburn, Macdonald Carey, Jean-Pierre Aumont, David Farrar, Peter Cushing, Basil Sydney, Thomas Gomez and the director's daughter Mia Farrow in what was her film début. BETTE DAVIS also made a cameo appearance as Empress Catherine the Great.... superb publicity photograph, but I have yet to hear from anyone who has actually enjoyed this film...


#THROWBACKTHURSDAY: DRACULA (1958) Count Dracula (Christopher Lee) leaves with his bride after that spectacular face off with Jonathan Harker in the library. Lee often suffered from back problems, brought on by carrying female actresses in such scenes as this and in The Mummy. (1959) Lee more than once mentioned that 'ladies in faint' where quite heavy, as they had to just hang there and couldn't assist by holding onto his neck or arm..!
