2009 Inductee-- Peter Cushing

¸          Peter Cushing—(1913-1994):  Hammer’s greatest star, and perhaps the most talented actor to work primarily in Horror, Cushing, along with frequent co-star Christopher Lee, helped build the Hammer mystique in films such as HORROR OF DRACULA, THE MUMMY, and THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN.  Capable of great range and depth in his acting, he was as effective at playing villains such as Victor Frankenstein as he was at sympathetic roles, such as the old man hounded to his death in TALES FROM THE CRYPT.
