Editorial Reviews

Review

“These concise yet beautifully written works of reminiscence fittingly mark 2013 as the centenary of the birth of a man... Highly recommended.” 5 stars – Horrorview
 
“For those who have only just discovered the inestimable talents of Peter Cushing, The Complete Memoirs is a moving, funny, revealing and self-effacing introduction to a very special, much missed actor. For his many longtime fans there is still much pleasure in revisiting the memoirs, reading and seeing the rarer material now included here.” – Cathode Ray Tube
 
“A moving account of a magnificent life, with reflections from those who knew and admired him.” – Rue Morgue
 
“We defy even the most cold-hearted of readers not to be moved to tears” 9/10 – Starburst

About the Author

Peter Cushing was born in 1913 and, after early roles in Hollywood, came to prominence as one of the original stars of BBC Television in the early 1950s. By the end of the decade his lead roles in numerous Hammer Horror films had made him internationally famous, and he is still best remembered for his numerous portrayals of Baron Frankenstein and Dr Van Helsing. His prolific career also saw him play Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes and the ruthless Grand Moff Tarkin in the original Star Wars. He died in 1994.

I have been a Peter Cushing fan since I saw HORROR OF DRACULA in the late fifties. I have a number of bios on him and this book is a welcome addition and the best of the bunch. Cushing was highly intelligent and that shines through in this book (which is actually a reprinted collection of two he had written years ago). His writing style is lean and he is not given to arrogance or wordiness. I recommend this book.

I think you have to be a fan to really enjoy this, but if you have an interest to old Hollywood and English cinema this is a great read. I just love this man and his work, was so happy they brought both of his out of print books together.

I have always been a big fan of Peter Cushing's! Reading this book makes me wish I could have had an opportunity to meet him. I can hear his voice reading the book to me. His sense of humor and wonderful stories make this a must have book. Glad I got it when I did from a dear friend as a gift! I can't thank him enough!
