#TBT ON REFLECTION it's a miracle that Peter Cushing appeared in 'The House That Dripped Blood' at all! Shooting began at Shepperton studio in the Summer of 1970. At the time, Peter's late wife Helen, was very ill and unusual for Cushing he asked to be released from his contract or if consideration could be given to the amount of time he would spend on set. The producers would not agree to this, so Cushing had to leave the shoot each day and speed back to his home in Whitstable, and then return early the following morning, bright and fresh ready to work.
DESPITE THESE PRESSURES, Cushing performance as actor Philip Grayson, is a interesting one. Playing a peg in a love triangle, with a wax figure...some of the shots in the film of Cushing walking lonely along river banks and streets, you can't help wondering what was really on his mind, as these were some of the last days he would spend with Helen... at her bedside or not.... #throwbackthursday
