Cushing's Holmes

Cushing's Holmes

Tony Earnshaw's long-awaited book examining Peter Cushing's numerous portrayals of Sherlock Holmes is now available from Scarecrow Press

, price $26.50.

The book traces the development of Cushing's portrayal of the character from Hammer's

The Hound of the Baskervilles through to the now difficult-to-see BBC series Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. The book closes with an examination of Cushing's starring role in Tyburn's The Masks of Death, and a look at the unrealised sequel The Abbot's Cry

.

This highly recommended volume features a foreword by

Masks of Death

director Roy Ward Baker.
