PETER CUSHING IN HIS ELEMENT HERE, 56 years ago he swung across the congregation of one Reverend Blyss, on location in a church that sat just outside the Hammer studios, in the sleepy village of Bray, England. The church now long gone, but the thrill of watching Peter having a ball and playing a great swash buckling dual role, is a throwback worth celebrating!
#TBT WHAT A GREAT DOUBLE BILL this must have been... Hammer films 'The Phantom of the Opera' with Herbert Lom and Edward de Souza and 'Captain Clegg' / 'Night Creatures' with Peter Cushing! Released in the UK together, Clegg and Phantom was supported by quite an impressive press campaign along with single and double bill cinema quad posters. Personally, Lom id my favourite Phantom, and Dr Blyss was a wonderful role for Peter, who was again given the opportunity to display some swordsmanship and a few stunts into the bargain!
