Summary Peter Cushing was an unforgettable presence in cult cinema, from Dracula to Star wars. Miller has written a definitive guide to the stage and screen career of this legendary star, drawing upon archive material held by the BBC and Hammer Film Productions, and previously unpublished correspondence with Cushing himself. The result forms the basis for a reassessment of his career and achievements.
