PASSINGS AND BIRTHDAYS MARKED AND CELEBRATED TODAY


IT IS VERY SAD TO TO HEAR about the passing of actor, Windsor Davies tonight. Windsor Davies was a Welsh actor who performed in many films and television shows between 1964 and 2004. And probably not that well know over the Atlantic, unless you are a Hammer film /Cushing fan too. Davies played the Police Sargent, who investigated the home of Veronica Carlson's home.. which was also the hidden lab and slaughter house of one, Baron Frankenstein, played by Peter Cushing. 



IT WAS ONE of the most tense scenes I can remeber in a Cushing Frankenstein film. And, Windsor played it very well indeed. To everyone else, he is best known for playing the part of Battery Sergeant Major Williams in the British sitcom It Ain't Half Hot Mum. His deep Welsh-accented voice was heard extensively in advertising voice-overs. Goodnight Windsor, you were a thundering force on stage and screen. Noson dda, Bendithiwch chi a Diolch. . .😌😉


BORN TODAY and remembered, EDGAR ALLAN POE. Such a talented and clever writer, such a sad and tragic life. Poe was an American writer, editor, and literary critic. Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre, which at times have adapted to the big screen very well, for Vincent Price in particular. The Peter Cushing connection is a short story which made part of the Amicus films, 'Torture Garden' collection in 1967. It presented one of the most interesting pieces of casting for Cushing, with Peter locked in a battle of possession, ego and wits with Jack Palance. I think Poe would have loved it! Happy Birthday Edgar. You are so missed and appreciated . .
