MANY ARE ALREADY hoping for maybe a full version of the 'LEGEND OF THE SEVEN GOLDEN VAMPIRES' music soundtrack. An album was released by Hammer films of this, along with the story narrated by #PETERCUSHING back in 197. Also a cleaned up print of the MILK MARKETING BOARD short feature, that was shot on location with the cast and crew in Hong Kong, would be a winner too. Fingers Crossed!

#MOMENTSOFTERROR #MONDAY! Back in the day, 1959 to be exact, Peter Cushing as #SherlockHolmes looms down from giant sized billboards in central London, promoting his first performance as Sherlock in Hammer films, only Holmes movie, 'The Hound of the Baskervilles'. Billboards were certainly impressive displays back in those days, as were the cinema posters!
