Peter Cushing: Past Forgetting - (

Peter Cushing remains one of Britain s best-loved film stars. Famous worldwide as Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars, Sherlock Holmes and the big screen Doctor Who, it is though for his performances in Hammer horror films that he is most fondly remembered. In 'Past Forgetting' Cushing tells the story of those two decades with Hammer and beyond, from his defining portrayals of Frankenstein and Van Helsing, to his experiences working alongside such greats as Laurence Olivier and Morecambe and Wise; to the love and loss of his wife Helen.

Originally released in 1988, Cushing s own reading of 'Past Forgetting' has long been out of print.

Now for the first time on CD, this edition features a bonus documentary featuring some of those who worked with Cushing, and new sleeve notes by The League of Gentlemen s Mark Gatiss.
