For many boomer horror fans, the Golden Age of Horror was the 1950s and 1960s, and occurred, courtesy, not of Universal Studios, but, from what those fans consider England's greatest export, Hammer Film Productions.
What teenager could argue with Technicolor blood, smolderingly sexy vampires (male and female) and heaving bosoms?
Memories of Hammer brings fans the reminiscences of the people in front of and behind the cameras at Hammer including: James Bernard, Martine Beswicke, Veronica Carlson, Freddie Francis, Val Guest, Christopher Lee, Suzanna Leigh, Ingrid Pitt, Jimmy Sangster, Barbara Shelley, Yutte Stensgaard and Virginia Wetherell.
The FANEX film convention was held in Baltimore for 19 years. During that time many stars and filmmakers of Hollywood’s Gold and Silver ages shared their memories with the devoted fans attending the show. Midnight Marquee is pleased to present their interviews, as well as the panel discussions, in which they participated. The talks are unedited and uncut. While we can’t provide readers with the actual FANEX experience, this book will offer Hammer fans the fascinating insights and humorous stories as told by the people who actually helped make Hammer Films so special. It was a pleasure to spend some quality time with real ladies and gentlemen of the movies.
