The Complete MemoirsBook - 2013
This lavish new book collects both volumes of Peter Cushing's memoirs - An Autobiography and Past Forgetting - with extensive unseen material from his private collection. Cushing was widely known as 'the gentleman of horror', his kind and sensitive nature a sharp contrast with the Hammer Horror roles that dominated his work from the 1950s onwards. This is Cushing's own account of his remarkable career, and the devastating sense of loss he suffered following the death of his wife. It offers unparalleled insight to the meticulous professionalism and private torment of a legendary film star.
