CLASSIC IMAGE: TARKIN'S TYRANNY!
Its amazing to see just how the kindest and most gentlest of people can play on screen baddies in film and TV so effectively. The much missed Peter Cushing being a particular case in point with his fine performance as Grand Moff Tarkin in STAR WARS. His acting and character were so great that, despite his demise with the destruction of the Death Star at the end of the first STAR WARS movie (which Cushing regretted as he wasn't able to come back for any sequels), he would return as a younger man for a brief appearance at the end of 2005's REVENGE OF THE SITH, and now, as well as his cruel and nasty adventures continuing in the Expanded Universe of books and comics, can shortly be seen as Captain Tarkin for the upcoming episode of THE CLONE WARS Season Three: The Citadel.
It looks as if evil is indeed everywhere!
