The Birthday Boys

Peter Cushing would be 98 today.
Tomorrow Christopher Lee will be 89,
and Vincent Price would be 100!
(He gets his own post.)

Though they often played enemies in their many films together.
In real life Peter & Christopher were best friends till the end.

"I don't want to sound gloomy, but, at some point of your lives,
every one of you will notice that you have in your life one person,
one friend whom you love and care for very much.
That person is so close to you that you are able to share some things only with him.
For example, you can call that friend,
and from the very first maniacal laugh or some other joke,
 you will know who is at the other end of that line.
We used to do that with him so often. And then when that person is gone,
there will be nothing like that in your life ever again."

- Christopher Lee (On his friendship with Peter Cushing)

  1. Aw, The Birthday Boys! How sweet! Can Horror Bloggers say sweet? Yes! I think in this case they can! I have no idea why this is the first comment. People are missing out. And that quote! Christopher's about Peter. He is so very sad. I'm seriously going to refer back to it time and time again, and when I meet or figure out who that person is in my life, and I hope to whomever, I will meet or figure it out, they will receive it, Holly Dear, and I have you to thanks! Thanks for a very moving post. Can Horror Bloggers say "moving" when it pertains to emotions? Yes! In this case, I think they can!. Excellent post. Now, I have to go to bed. I've been trying to catch up tonight, and I'm afraid I didn't even make it to my blog, just my friends! But I'll be back tomorrow to read Vincent's.....Until next time...Keep those fires stoked!
    Eternally Yours
