“In All Sincerity... Peter Cushing” by Christopher Gullo with a foreword by Peter Sasdy In All Sincerity…Peter Cushing is a new book examining the career of the gentle man of horror. In a career spanning six decades and many mediums, including film, television, theatre, radio, and writing, Peter Cushing has been hailed as a consummate actor who was loved by both fans and co-workers alike. Whether through his early days touring with Laurence Olivier, becoming England’s first television star, recreating the characters of Baron Frankenstein and Abraham Van Helsing for Hammer Films, or appearing in Star Wars, the most famous science fiction film ever produced, Peter Cushing exemplified dignity, preparedness and dedication to his craft. Four years in the making, “In All Sincerity…Peter Cushing” breaks down the actor’s career into decades from his very beginnings in local theatre, his stint in Hollywood, and his rise to fame as the king of horror and beyond. Over eighty actors, actresses and directors have contributed to the book, including Val Guest, Robert Quarry, Francis Matthews, Brian Cox, Forrest J. Ackerman, Yvonne Monlaur, Mark Hamill, John Carpenter, Ted Newsom, Caroline Munro and the late Sir Nigel Hawthorne. Featuring dozens of pictures, “In All Sincerity…Peter Cushing” includes some rare candid and never before published photos of Peter Cushing on the sets of The Curse of Frankenstein, The Gorgon, The Skull, Frankenstein Created Woman, and Tendre Dracula, at leisure; indulging in his love of painting, the 1975 Famous Monsters convention and the 1992 opening of ‘Cushing’s View.’ Also featured is a dedication from his life-long love Helen Beck six months before their marriage. In All Sincerity…Peter Cushing offers fans a personal look at a truly talented man. Author Christopher Gullo has been a life-long admirer of actor Peter Cushing. He has spent the last four years collecting rare materials and conducting interviews with Cushing’s co-workers for his research on the book. In the beginning of 2000, he took over the running of The Peter Cushing Association, a club for all fans of the great actor, which was created under the guidance of Peter Cushing’s former secretary, Joyce Broughton.
