Peter Cushing, much appreciated
The late PC was one of the best (and best-loved) British film actors. Actually he began as a TV star, and was the first person to be given one of those now-familiar 'retainer' contracts, by the BBC. He was paid to be available, for a specific time, rather than to do any specific thesping job. Big star, he. Also a good Doctor Who. Anyway, over at the excellent Eccentric Cinema site, there's a special feature giving many reviews of the horror movies of Peter Cushing.
