Happy Birthday, Peter Cushing

Grand Moff Tarkin

and many, many more.

All these are names connected to Mr Peter Cushing, one of the great old men of British cinema.

Although never quite as popular during his life time than Hammer Film co-star Christopher Lee (film adversary and real life friend) he has become a legend in his own right. If Peter Cushing would still be with us today, it would be his 100th birthday.

In reference to how I will always remember him:

May the Force be with you, Grand Moff!
