|From House of Long Shadows - Christopher Lee, Vincent Price, and Peter Cushing |
-- And a John Carradine bonus!
Peter Cushing was born on May 26th. And over his career he was the hero and villain in many a tale. From Doctor Frankenstein to Sherlock Holmes to Doctor Who. Through it all it could be hard not to root for him as his characters faced their travails (often brought on by their own hubris).
|Grand Moff Tarkin|
|Dr. Van Helsing|
And, born on a May 27th, there is his old friend, continual adversary, and occasional ally. (The last two being in regards to movie roles. The always wonderful and larger than life Christopher Lee. Thankfully, Lee is still around, and still producing art. (Like a metal album.)
|Duc de Richleau|
Finally we have Vincent Price. A charmer. An artist. A staple of so many movies going back to the 1940's, he was ever a character to behold. Like Lee, he was born on a May 27th.
Enjoy a terrible tale, or three, this weekend in honor of them.
