IF YOU HAVE ANY COMMENT TO ADD TO THIS PAGE POST OR QUESTIONS, JUST EMAIL US AT PETERCUSHINGPCAS@GAMIL,COM AND I WILL ADD IT TO TO THIS POST!

WEDNESDAY'S would have returned to FREE GIF day over at our CLOSING FACEBOOK PAGE this week, instead of us giving away rare contact sheets and colour Cushing, Lee and Price photographs for you collectors out there. THOSE great gifts will resume here at the website soon. Lots to give you, I think you will like! In the meantime GIFS. They are back on Wednesday's! I always love posting images of Vincent and Christopher here. Good friends of Peter's and always fun to share here. Especially, in THIS film. Not everyone liked it. Personally, I LOVE it. Vincent, despite not being happy with the finished production . . .still performed so well and Lee, come the end, was truly terrifying!!! You KNOW this one... and  what did you think of it...and were they right to be cast together in this special one? This GIF was requested by Dylan T! Hope you like it Dylan, it IS just as you asked for!



JON PERTWEE ONLY APPEARED I think, in just ONE Amicus film. His role in 'THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD', has always been popular. Assisted by Ingrid Pitt playing Carla Lind, playing his, Paul Henderson's girlfriend in Segment 4 'THE CLOAK' Pertwee was great. Probably the ONLY actor to have delivered a line about Christopher Lee playing the role of DRACULA, in a mocking way...and got away with it! CUSHING's role as Philip Grayson in his story with Joss Ackland, 'WAXWORKS' I always find a little trying to enjoy. Cushing was at this time, nursing he very ill wife, Helen. 


HE TRIED to leave the commitment of the film, so he could be with her. Stubbornly, the producers said no. Cushing life Shepperton studios, every night, to travel to Whitstable, to be with his wife, to leave early the following early hours, for the next days shoot. This great GIF was requested by Paula Dean.  



IT'S COMMON KNOWLEDGE whatever role Milton Subotsky suggested to Peter Cushing in any of his AMICUS FILMS, with the exception of  a few starring roles, the script was always open, if there was a role Peter preferred to play. In TALES FROM THE CRYPT, Grimsdyke was NOT the role he was originally offered. Cushing was originally intended to play Ralph Jason, but after looking at the script he suggested to Subotsky that he would do more justice to the role of Mr. Grimsdyke. Subotsky never considered offering Grismdyke to Cushing, because of the connections with Cushing's own wife, Helen having passed, just months before. 


THE ROLE OF THIS chap though, so Milton told me, was something Peter very much liked. On receiving the script, Peter told Milton he could supply most of the costume, and would be very happy to play it. It's one of Cushing's most amusing and yet a little dark too. The perfect combination for Cushing. Something that would make us, uneasy about a man who himself was the kindest and so much loved. Terri Beale this is YOUR requested GIF! 



MARSHA A HUNT, is known to have had a good time when making Hammer films 'DRACULA AD 1972' and when the camera was off, she liked to have fun, and didn't take Christopher Lee's playing of the Count off camera and his authority, that seriously or respectfully at all. BUT when it came to shoot her scenes with his DRACULA, there was no shortage of, what appeared to be TRUE concern. HA!  This GIF is requested by Dawn Hughes . .
