Book Excerpt : In its heyday during the Fifties, Sixties and early Seventies, Hammer Films produced a legacy of horror films such as Dracula, The Curse of Frankenstein and The Quatermass Experiment, featuring stars who included Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Bette Davis, Ursula Andress, Raquel Welch, Stephanie Beacham and Julie Ege. This book provides a chronological, film-by-film history of the studio, from its obscure beginnings in the 1930s to its decline and virtual disappearance five decades later. It includes coverage of the pre-horror, science-fiction films of the 1950s, and post-horror comedy of the 1980s, with complete credits for all Hammer films.
