TAKEN FROM CHRISTOPHER LEE'S autobiography, 'Lord of Misrule' this is Lee's thoughts on his time taken making the Dracula saga . . did he make too many? On posting this today at the FACEBOOK PCASUK FAN PAGE, we've asked our friends and followers, What do THEY think of this statement?
ON POSTING that banner and Christopher Lee quote, along with various interesting comments today, a few have also messaged me to ask where did that unusual 'HORROR OF DRACULA' poster come from? Well, it's a very rare day-bill for the 1970’s (1st Australian release) of the 1958 classic ‘Hammer’ production. I don't own it sadly! In Oz they had quite a playful way of producing their play-bill designs . . here is one below of a montage of images, pasted together for quickly hand-written up publicity hand outs .
AND FOLLOWING ON the Christopher Lee Dracula post . . here is a neat rarely seen and addition to a series of photographs taken in a photo session with Christopher Lee and several models / actress who appeared in Hammer films 'Dracula AD 1972' by the UK 'newspaper' The Daily Mirror'. I love the sellotape tacked onto the flat in the background 😀 It is a very interesting and quite weird series of photographs, that also at one point had photo fans and collectors, convinced that actress Linda Hayden, was featured in some of the photos and poses . . even Hayden herself! You can learn more about that in a photo feature, I wrote sometime ago, RIGHT HERE!
