Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee

September 12th, 2022

The giants of British horror, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, are the subject of the eighty-sixth episode of “Boys and Ghouls”.  Starting with “The Curse of Frankenstein”, they were the cornerstone of Hammer horror.  Together and separately, they’ve given the horror genre decades of frightening films.

 

From among their many collaborations, we have selected four movies to focus on.  “The Curse of Frankenstein” (1957), “The Hound of the Baskervilles” (1959), “Horror Express” (1972), and their final film together, “House of the Long Shadows” (1983).

 

Along the way, we also explore the long friendship of Cushing and Lee; from their implausible showbiz-anecdote first meeting, to their well-documented last.

 

So, give a listen to this tribute to these titians of terror, Peter Wilton Cushing and Christopher Frank Carandini Lee.
