HERE'S A GREAT OFF CAMERA MOMENT with Peter Cushing and George Pravda duriong the making of HAMMER FILMS 'FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED' a quick break, a puff and off they go top create more monsters and mayhem!
A VERY INTERESTING PIECE OF FOOTAGE behind the scenes also during the making of Hammer Films 'Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed' at Elstree studios. The actor being 'Bloodied Up' is George Pravda, who played the role of Dr Brandt in the film. What makes this clip of interest is the application of the blood...being applied by make up artists, Eddie Knight. It appears tp be MUCH MORE blood that actually appears in the finished film, which makes one wonder if this is another scene, being 'bloodied up' for the Asian market release of the film. CEO of Hammer films, James Carreras said on camera and many times in interviews how some scenes were shot two or three times, each having more blood or violence, that would never pass the UK censors, but were shot especially for overseas markets. Which makes one wonder, after the successful hunting down of those vital Hammer 'Dracula's Death' shots from the 1958 film...is there more out there from this Frankenstein Cushing treat??
HERE'S A PRETTY BUSY AND COLOURFUL FILM SET at Shepperton studios, all up and ready before the camera rolls..but in WHICH Peter Cushing film, does this film set appear? Answer later!
