Welcome to another edition of THE HORROR JAR, that column where we feature various lists of odds and ends pertaining to horror movies.

Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, and Vincent Price all share birthdays in May: Cushing on May 26 and both Lee and Price on May 27.

To celebrate the birthdays of these three horror icons, here’s a list of movies in which all three stars, Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, and Vincent Price appeared together. It’s a brief list, since it only happened twice:

SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN (1970)
An Amicus Production
Directed by Gordon Hessler
Screenplay by Christopher Wicking, based on the novel The Disoriented Man by Peter Saxon
Dr. Browning: Vincent Price
Fremont: Christopher Lee
Benedek: Peter Cushing
Running Time: 95 minutes

HOUSE OF THE LONG SHADOWS (1983)
Directed by Peter Walker
Screenplay by Michael Armstrong based on the novel Seven Keys to Baldpate by Earl Derr Biggers
Lionel Grisbane: Vincent Price
Corrigan: Christopher Lee
Sebastian Grisbane: Peter Cushing
Lord Grisbane: John Carradine
Running Time: 100 minutes

Sadly, neither of these movies is very good. But you can’t beat the cast!

Thanks for reading!
