Peter Cushing on DVD and YouTube

Just coming from Chris Gullo, author of the excellent Cushing biography IN ALL SINCERITY... PETER CUSHING:

"September 11, as part of a Halloween promotion - will see the DVD release of two double-features (there are others but these two have Peter Cushing films in them): Tales from the Crypt/Vault of Horror, Mystery on Monster Island/Gorilla at Large.

Upcoming Columbia box sets in the works - Cushing/Lee horror collection (together and solo). Planned for the box set includes "Corruption" and "The Creeping Flesh".

P.S. For the Christopher Lee fans here Columbia is also planning a box set of Lee's Pirate/adventure films."

I could have posted this earlier, but somehow thought this would be taken off YouTube very quickly, but it is still there, so also do check out the YouTube release of Cushing's rare BBC version 1984 from 1954, just 6 years after the original book came out. Also starring Donald Pleasance in his first appearance (to the best of my knowledge) and Andre Morell. Adapted by Nigel Kneale.

I've been watching all the Peter Cushing clips on YouTube that I can. Recently I've watched three movies of his, "Curse of Frankstein," "Horror of Dracula," and "At The Earth's Core." I definitely want to get this new DVD of his. Cushing, Christopher Lee, and Vincent Price are my three favorite horror actors. Cushing always seemed so polite and distinguished.
