In All Sincerity…Peter Cushing is a new book examining the career of the gentle man of horror. In a career spanning six decades and many mediums, including film, television, theatre, radio, and writing, Peter Cushing has been hailed as a consummate actor who was loved by both fans and co-workers alike. Whether through his early days touring with Laurence Olivier, becoming England’s first television star, recreating the characters of Baron Frankenstein and Abraham Van Helsing for Hammer Films, or appearing in Star Wars, the most famous science fiction film ever produced, Peter Cushing exemplified dignity, preparedness and dedication to his craft. Four years in the making, In All Sincerity…Peter Cushing breaks down the actor’s career into decades from his very beginnings in local theatre, his stint in Hollywood, and his rise to fame as the king of horror and beyond. 

In All Sincerity...Peter Cushing.Over eighty actors, actresses and directors have contributed to the book, including Val Guest, Francis Matthews, Brian Cox, Yvonne Monlaur, Mark Hamill, John Carpenter, Ted Newsom, Caroline Munro and the late Sir Nigel Hawthorne. 

Featuring over one hundred pictures, In All Sincerity…Peter Cushing includes some rare and never before published photos from such events as Cushing receiving his Daily Mail Award for best actor of 1953, at leisure; indulging in his love of painting, his appearance at the premiere of Brides of Dracula, and the 1992 opening of ‘Cushing’s View.’ In All Sincerity…Peter Cushing offers fans a personal look at a truly talented man.
