#THROWBACKTHURSDAY: March 9th 1976 . . . Unbelievably, it's 41 YEARS, that's 14983 Days Today... since Peter Cushing started his four days work at Elstree studios playing the role of Grand Moff Tarkin in 'Star Wars'. Here's a very nest snap of Peter between takes with Don Henderson on the left and Dave Prowse as Darth Vader, standing... er, where else but, behind!
#GETTHECUSHIONITSCUSHING! A beautiful and rare publicity photograph of Peter Cushing as Dr Lawrence from 'The Ghoul' (1975) Kneeling at the altar, the photograph that Cushing is holding, is actually a photograph of his late wife, Helen. As I am sure regular visitors to this page know, the pic was included in the film, by special request from Peter... in order that he could fulfill his wish, of having appeared in a motion picture with his wife...
#THROWBACKTHURSDAY: The TWO Peter Cushing Dr Who Dalek films were produced in the mid sixties, 1965 and 66. But what if Milton Subotsky and AARU Productions, hadn't stopped at TWO films and produced more with Peter Cushing?? That’s the premise talented artist Dave Burgess has explored with artwork such as this excellent piece featuring Christopher Lee too in Dr. Who and the Dalek Masterplan! Dave has a portfolio: DR. WHO | MOVIE ARTWORK and much else here besides. Worth a look.
