It's Ten Times the Terror in Technicolor! -- June 23, 2013

Peter Cushing was the first actor to play Sherlock Holmes in a color movie, in the 1959 version of Hound of the Baskervilles.  I first saw it on Creature Features, a Saturday night horror movie show.  In 1965, Cushing played Holmes in a British television series. 

26-May-2013 was Peter Cushing's 100th birthday.  In his honor, Pierre Fournier of Frankensteinia hosted the Peter Cushing Centennial Blogathon
