Hammer Glamour: Classic Images from the Archive of Hammer Films
Year of Publication
Titan Books, 2009
Over fifty years ago, with the release of The Curse of Frankenstein and Christopher Lee in Dracula, Hammer ushered in a whole new era of blood and barely restrained cleavage in glorious color, mixing sex and horror with a style and panache that made the small British company world famous.
Bursting at the seams with rare and previously unpublished photographs from Hammer’s archive and private collections worldwide and featuring many new interviews, Hammer Glamour is a lavish, full-color celebration of Hammer’s female stars, including Ingrid Pitt, Martine Beswick, Caroline Munro, Barbara Shelley, Joanna Lumley, Nastassja Kinski, and of course Raquel Welch (who can forget her fur bikini in One Million Years B. C.?)
