The final teaming of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. The first half of the two-hour show was broadcast on the BBC three days before Cushing died of cancer. Producer Michael Carreras died shortly after that. Music was courtesy of Silva Screen Records. Because of time considerations, the program was broadcast on the BBC in a rough-cut form. It was subsequently re-edited for release on videotape in the US. Yet another version has been released on DVD in Japan, the US and Austalia. An expanded, 135 minute version is due to be released in the UK in 1997. See more »
Documentary, narrated by Lee and Cushing charting the huge success of Hammer at Bray studios. It covers the categories of films eg Frankenstein, Dracula and others rather than opt for a straight chronological journey and as well as many great clips to jog memories there are some fascinating insights from directors and producers.
A touch stilted / unimaginative in its presentation, but worth seeing if you're interest in film history or just loved the Hammer films.
