Superb vintage 8x10-inch black and white glossy publicity portrait as John Banning in Hammer Studio's 1959 horror classic, The Mummy, signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen in the 1970s or 1980s: "Greg-- May God’s blessing be with / you always. / In all sincerity / Peter Cushing." In fine condition. Among his many classic film roles, British character actor Peter Cushing is especially revered by horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and mystery buffs for his starring roles in The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), Dracula (1958), The Mummy (1959), The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959), Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965), several Dr. Who films (1965, 1966), Frankenstein Created Woman (1967), and I, Monster (1971). In 1977, he portrayed the deliciously wicked Grand Moff Tarkin in the beloved science-fiction epic Star Wars (1977). He was also one of the many actors to portray the great detective Sherlock Holmes.
