#TOOCOOLTUESDAY: Pretty much a defunct format now, this laser disc of Cushing and Lee's Dracula epic, Dracula AD 1972 comes in some not too tatty packaging. The word is #lush ! It might not have extras, but the copy-em-wrap-em-and-shift-em presentation of some of the higher end 'special edition' blu ray and DVD disc releases of today, could learn a thing or two from this release.... #grabthecushinitscushing
#TOOCOOLTUESDAY: Quite a desirable item for some of us, as it's the full 83 mins 39 seconds long! Many dodgy (see Brit speak for: 'Unreliable, scammers, fakers, crooks, con-artist and robbing ********) traders have been selling DVD recordings of VHS 2nd generation copies of the BBC 1980 transmission of The Ghoul for quite a few years now, sticking anything to hand that's related to the film, onto the cover, to pass mustard. (Brit speak for to appear legitimate, kosher..sound as a pound..!! ..ok I'll stop now!) I saw one box a while ago, sporting a cover with just a pic of John Hurt, from his role in the film, '1984', funnily enough as Winston Smith, the role Cushing played in the amazing BBC production of '1984' broadcast in 1954. Weird huh?
STARTING THIS SUNDAY, we are giving our #SHERLOCKSUNDAYS a rest for a little while, but there will still be occasional Cushing Holmes posts! Instead we are trying something new... #grabthecushionitscushing ! Drop by this SUNDAY and see what you think??
