About this Item

First Edition. Foreword by Barry Morse and Sydney Morse. 465 pages. Illustrated. Fine copy without dust jacket as issued. A terrific overview of the life and complete documentation of the films of actor Peter Cushing, including Hamlet (1947), Moulin Rouge (1952), The Curse of Frankenstein (1956), Horror of Dracula (1957), The Hound of the Baskervilles (1958), Scream and Scream Again (1969), Tales from the Crypt (1971), in George LucasÕs Star Wars films as Grand Moff Tarkin, etc. Peter Cushing (1913 - 1994) is best remembered for his work as a master actor in the horror film genre and, as the bookÕs title indicates, he was in Ôreal lifeÕ a true gentleman. In 1984 Cushing won an International Fantasy Film Award - Best Actor for his contributions to the fantastic film genre. Commenting on acting in horror films, Mr. Cushing reflects: ÒThere is little chance for a person to exercise the imagination today in this complex, programmed society we have. These movies allow people of all ages to experience wondrous things and a good fright never hurt a healthy person.Ó. Bookseller Inventory # 18424E
