Happy Birthday Peter Cushing
Had Peter Cushing not died in 1994, today would have been his 100th birthday.
Peter Cushing, in case you're unaware, was one of the greatest movie stars of all time... or, at least, one of my all time favorites. I would imagine I first saw him as Grand Moff Tarkin in the original Star Wars, but I also loved him as Van Helsing in countless Hammer Dracular films, Frankenstein, Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Who, and hundreds of other roles spanning every genre.
Anyway, Peter Cushing was one of the all time greats, and I can't think of a better way to spend Memorial Day than by remembering his work.
