#GETTHECUSHINGSUNDAY! If you are a fan of the work of Peter Cushing, the title of one #HammerFilm in particular, will strike a chord of sadness, Blood from The Mummy's Tomb (1971) was probably the only film in Peter Cushing's career where he requested to be released from his contract, and the company consented. Cushing was just two days into the production of Blood From The Mummy's Tomb at Elstee studios, when his wife, Helen passed. 

Just months before, fearing the worse as Helen health was deteriorating he had requested, for his contract with the production 'The House That Dripped Blood' without success. As you will see from the documentary the film was blighted from the beginning and before the shooting was wrapped, the film would also sadly loose it's director, Seth Holt . . . On Cushing leaving his role of Professor Julian Fuchs was, at the last minute, recast and Andrew Keir did good as the Professor . . .
