Lee and Cushing: An Introductory Chat with Dan and Kirsty

The Satanic Rites of Dracula (1973) is the film that inspired Brian Gorman’s artwork for this podcast

Howard and Dan will soon resume their epic quest to document in podcasts every filminc collaboration between actors and sometime horror stars Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee.  As a curtain-raiser, Kirsty offered to bring her perspective to the table and accept an introductory exploration of this unique filmography from Dan.

As part of this, Kirsty sampled two particular examples from either end of the Lee/Cushing horror pantheon, The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) and The Satanic Rites of Dracula (1973) – the film which inspired our lovely Brian Gorman podcast artwork – and brings her academic perspective to bear on both films.

Howard and Dan’s original 2015 podcast about The Curse of Frankenstein will be added to this podcast feed soon after this episode is uploaded, and will be followed by other previously-available discussions of Dr Terror’s House of Horrors (1965), Scream and Scream Again (1970) and The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959) before our upload of a brand new Howard/Dan Lee/Cushing episode, on Horror Express (1972), next week.
