5.0 von 5 Sternen A Look at the Hammer Horror Icons 2. Mai 2010
Von Tim Janson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Like Karloff and Lugosi, the names Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing are synonymous with horror. The pair made 22 films together (far more than Karloff and Lugosi) although some may be surprised to know that not all of them were in the horror genre. Their work is celebrated in this new book from McFarland & Company, always a leader in scholarly film books.

Mark A. Miller, English teacher and writer for publications such as Filmfax and Shivers, looks at the pair's career in detail and with a thorough analysis if each of their films. One can say that Karloff and Lugosi passed the horror team torch on to the pair in more ways than one. As Miller notes in the introduction, Karloff and Lee made three films together including The Crimson Altar (1968) and Corridors of Blood (1958). The Pair became close friends and even played cricket together.

Miller begins with chapters devoted to the early lives of each actor. We learn about their childhoods, families, education, personal lives, and what drew them into careers as actors. Lee, born in London but of Italian ancestry, can trace his family's roots back to the time of Christ. Despite having several family members who were actors, Cushing was into his thirties before he began his own theatrical career. Of all things, the refined British actor was a big fan of early Western film star, Tom Mix.

As mentioned, not all of their collaborations were in the horror genre. In fact, their first teaming was a production of Shakespeare's Hamlet in 1948. Perhaps even more amusing was their second pairing, the 1952 romantic musical, Moulin Rouge. However it would be their next two pairings that would eventually make legends of Lee and Cushing, 1957's The Curse of Frankenstein and 1958's Horror of Dracula. These two films teamed the pair with England's Hammer Studios for whom they would make 8 films together, and many more on their own. These films, and the sequels that followed returned horror to the gothic roots of Universal Studio's films of the 1930s and 1940s.

Miller provides a detailed synopsis, background, and critical analysis of each of their 22 films and had done a remarkable job of research. There are wonderful anecdote's about each film's production and include comments by the actors themselves as well as period reviews from critics. Miller shares his expert view on what worked...and didn't work with each of the films, breaking down directorial and casting selections, and examining key scenes. A complete filmography is included with a complete list of credits for each film, year of release, and running time.

About the only mild criticism I would lob is that it would have been nice to have a few more photos and perhaps some color photos but this is minor. Miller has done outstanding job of covering this immortal team and their films.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very informative collection 26. Dezember 2011
Von joe Fasching - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I really enjoyed this book. It is a very informative collection that covers all of their films quite well; however, be aware that is has very few pics and no color pics. It could have been much much more.
5.0 von 5 Sternen The Horror Legacy of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee! 24. November 2013
Von Michael OConnor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This 2010 paperback edition of CHRISTOPHER LEE AND PETER CUSHING AND HORROR CINEMA, A FILMOGRAPHY OF THEIR 22 COLLABORATIONS is a straight reprint of the HC published by McFarland in 1995. Although overpriced at $45.00, it is a well-rounded, critical yet affectionate summary of the films those two horror icons made together.

Though they first crossed cinematic paths in 1948 with Olivier's HAMLET production, Cushing and Lee struck lightning in 1957 with Hammer's THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, a film that made them both film stars and started a long association with Hammer Films. In the following years, they made some wonderful films together and a few celluloid stinkers including THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES, THE GORGON, THE SKULL, HORROR OF DRACULA, SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN, DRACULA A.D. 1972 and HOUSE OF THE LONG SHADOWS. Despite the varying quality of those films, both men always gave their best.

Millers' book provides a thorough, entertaining and perceptive chronicle of the 22 C&L films, providing plot summaries, production details and critical/popular reception along with comments by C&L, co-stars like Hazel Court, director Freddie Francis, etc.

While the book is a valuable summary of C&L's film collaboration, what I found most memorable was its description of the love and affection between the two. Over the years, Cushing and Lee became best friends and it's touching to read of their friendship.

In short, CHRISTOPHER LEE AND PETER CUSHING AND HORROR FILMS is a well-researched, informative and altogether charming summary of two cinematic greats in action. Recommended.
