#THROWBACKTHURSDAY: VERY INTERESTING evidence has come to light of a film that Peter Cushing appeared in the 1940's. THE NEW SCHOOL, in pre production titles, The New Teacher, was made in the UK by the UK government's CROWN FILM UNIT and mostly shot in Yorkshire and at the Homerton Collage, Cambridge . There are several pieces evidence, that appear to indicate that this was a public information film, popular at the time, and before the advent of mass broadcasting television in the UK. For the first time, we are presenting here a cover from the shooting script, a photograph of the crew on location at Homerton Collage, along with it's Crown copyright reverse side. We are working alongside a partner interest in finding out more about this 'unknown' addition to the Cushing filmography, and will keep you up to date, with any further developments and finds. Many thanks to S. Paterson for their keen eye and assistance. - Marcus

IT MIGHT BE YOU (1946) IS ANOTHER example of a film which Peter Cushing made with the CROWN FILM UNIT (above) In it, Peter Cushing plays a doctor, in a what is basically a film about driving and road safety. His diction is very much standard BBC, clipped and perfect! ... Peter Cushing appears for the duration after 1.45 mins into the short. Look out also for actor Peter Madden who would later work with Cushing in Hammer films, 'Frankenstein Created Woman' (1967) as the Chief of Police and before that, in Amicus films, 'Dr Terrors House of Horrors' in 1965. Enjoy!
