a stunning collection of photos and information
on 25 June 2016
For fans of the Hammer movies, this book is a treat. It presents a collection of glossy photos as well as detailed information on each of the lovely ladies who starred in the films. These women provided a distinctive 'glamourous' feel to each movie - often in a slightly provocative, alluring manner (and occasionally in a more overtly sexualised fashion).
Drawing of the Hammer achieves, dozens of both colour and black & white photos have been found and assembled. And each actress has, whenever possible, been interviewed - and provided with an opportunity to recollect what it was like taking part in these famous British films.
This is a well-presented book, and it's obvious that a great deal of care and attention has gone into producing it. Typically it's the male protagonists - such as Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee - who get all the attention. This book rightly seeks to redress that situation. Now we can once again admire the 'glamour' that was an essential part of Hammer!
