Scarce and nifty vintage 6x8-inch black and white publicity portrait as Dr. Frankenstein, surrounded by the chemistry equipment with which he hubristically played God and bestowed life upon dead tissue, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen in later years. In good 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), 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.
