Cat. #00115322211: PETER CUSHING

Terrific vintage 9.5 x 7.5-inch black and white publicity still for Hammer's horror classic The Mummy (1959), boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen for a noted in-person collector in the 1970s. In good condition, with some minor edgewear and a few minor handling dings. 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.
