FOR THOSE OF YOU who have never come across this one, in the Cushing Filmography, it's an interesting role. It's a GUEST STAR appearance, but a performance that even though brief, gives screen time, to a Cushing relaxed 'turn' that surprisingly boarders at times, to the edge that Cushing gave to his performance of Baron Frankenstein in Hammer's 1969 'Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed'! 'Shatter' also known as Call Him Mr Shatter and They Call Him Mr Shatter is a 1974 British-Hong Kong action film starring Stuart Whitman, Lung Ti, Lily Li, Anton Diffring and Peter Cushing in his last film for Hammer Studios. It was the second and final international co-production between Hammer Studios of England and Shaw Brothers Studio of Hong Kong as part of the 'Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires' package. The film was shot entirely on location in Hong Kong and was first released in 1974 in UK.
