This review is from: Hammer Glamour (Hardcover)
Well, this has to be the best book purchase of the year. A glorious trip down memory lane, visiting old imaginary girlfriends, brought vividly to life in a selection of fabulous colour portraits, many of which I had never seen before. The layout of the book is appealing to the senses and the mini biogs are clear, concise and interesting. To hear about their lives, kinda spoiled my shallow lusting-after vision of each, because just like us all, they had warts and all. Seriously, its made for fascinating reading, for I knew little about these femme fatales.
I've been having breakfast with at least two ladies from the book's contents, each morning for a couple of weeks, and still got Ingrid Pitt and Madeline Smith to go. Life just doesnt get any better...
It is a fantastic book, which has awakened my interest in Hammer films, and I will be aquiring Marcus Hearn's other book on the subject this Christmas.
Now, if the author would just kindly supply me with the telephone numbers of each, 2009 will be the year of the decade.
