Cat. #00115322213: PETER CUSHING

Scarce 8x10-inch black and white portrait as the titular hubristic scientist in The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen in the late 1970s. In good condition, with one minor handling ding, invisible when the photo is viewed head-on. 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.
