Yesterday at the PCAS FACEBOOK FAN PAGE we celebrated
the Birthday of JACK ASHER....
Find out MORE about JACK ASHER'S work on Hammer films
Next time you sit down and watch your favourite early Peter Cushing Hammer film, and marvel at the beautiful gothic atmosphere, the rich colours, the frightening shadows... that 'Hammer Look and Style', remember this man, ace cinematographer Jack Asher BSC, a true magician! He did indeed paint with light! Best known for his work with Hammer, The Curse of Frankenstein, Hound of the Baskervilles, Dracula / Horror of Dracula, The Mummy and The Revenge of Frankenstein. Jack was born in London, on this very day in 1916. A REAL craftsman, who applied his skills along with Terence Fisher and the Hammer team, and gave us these rare feasts which live on, in living colour today! Jack left us in April 1991, aged 74. Happy Birthday Jack!
