About the Book

From their first pairing in Hamlet (1948) to House of the Long Shadows (1983), British film stars Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing forged perhaps the most successful collaboration in horror film history. In its revised and expanded second edition, this volume examines their 22 movie team-ups, with critical commentary, complete cast and credits, production information, details on cinematography and make-up, exhibition history and box-office figures. A wealth of background about Hammer, Amicus and other production companies is provided, along with more than 100 illustrations. Lee and Cushing describe particulars of their partnership in original interviews. Exclusive interviews with Robert Bloch, Hazel Court and nearly fifty other actors, directors and others who worked on the Lee-Cushing films are included.

Book Reviews & Awards

Reviews of the first edition: “A model of research and presentation…not just an excellent film book—it’s an excellent book, period”—Filmfax; “marvelous”—Video Watchdog; “all 22 of Lee/Cushing’s collaborative films are examined, dissected, and most importantly, fairly critiqued”—bare•bones.
