Peter Cushing Quotes:

Dr. Lawrence Phillips: The potential across the cell membrane must be maintained during irradiation of the nucleus. Is the tri-chem stage complete?
Carson: Yes.
Dr. Lawrence Phillips: And the, uh, vapor-applicator?
Carson: It's been corrected. The histo-connect problem has been solved. There shouldn't be any snags.

Baron Frankenstein: I realized long ago that the only way to prove my theories was to make something in my laboratory that actually lived. I never told you, Hans... I succeeded once.

Considered The Blood Beast Terror (1968) to be the worst film he ever made.

In his later years, he and Joyce DeWitt of "Three's Company" (1976) fame became trans-Atlantic pen pals, when the two became part of the voice-over ensemble for the animated film "Walpurgis Night". Peter recorded his role in England, while Joyce later commenced recording in California, alongside his old friend Ferdy Mayne. It was during this time that Joyce, being a fan of both classic films and Shakespeare's works, and Peter, an admirer of the American West, enjoyed their friendship by post.
