This is the Weekend of Long Shadows, as we celebrate the birthdays of Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Vincent Price.
I will not bore you explaining how much these three gentlemen kept me company as a kid. There was a time when their movies were everywhere and at least once a week you’d be able to catch on of their works on the TV.
To celebrate these old friends, I’ll be re-watching three of their movies today.
First, The Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas, featuring Peter Cushing.
Then, The Mummy, featuring both Cushing and Christopher Lee.
And finally, The Raven, with Vincent Price (and Boris Karloff, and Peter Lorre, and Jack Nicholson…)
It’s going to be a good day.
