Birthday remembrances - Cushing, Price, Lee


Peter Cushing had a birthday yesterday, May 26 (born 1913); today, May 27 is the birth date of 2, count 'em, 2 horror icons - Vincent Price (born 1911) and Christopher Lee (Sir Christopher, born 1922).  

I understand that Mr. Cushing was one of the sweetest, nicest, kindest actors ever, the kind of guy who made tea for his movie double when the man was not feeling well.   Boris Karloff also was a sweetie.

When Vincent Price came along he gave the others a run for their money for the title of greatest gentleman in the movies.  

Christopher Lee as well.  He sounds like a genuine class act.


To all of you gentle gentlemen,...we miss you.

Mr. Cushing

"The Curse of Frankenstein"  1957
as Osric in "Hamlet" - 1948








as Van Helsing in "Dracula A.D. 1972" - 1972



as Mr. Grimsdyke in "Tales From the Crypt" - 1972



the above pic from "Scream and Scream Again" - 1969.  Vincent Price and Christopher Lee also had very small roles

Mr. Price

from "House on Haunted Hill" - 1959



from "House of Wax" - 1953




from "The Fly" - 1959.  Vincent Price and Herbert Marshall had to do their takes for this scene back to back, because they could not look at each other and say their lines about the fly in the spider web without cracking up laughing.  



from "Laura" - 1944.  With Judith Anderson


"The Pit and the Pendulum" - 1961




from "The Fall of the House of Usher" - 1960




Mr. Lee




"The Horror of Dracula" - 1958



"Dr Terror's House of Horrors" - 1965


                                                                        




from "Dracula A.D. 1972" - 1972.  Getting ready for the shot.  Or should I say "stake".



Got it.



"The Wicker Man" - 1973.  Lee is on the far right, in the dress.
