NEWS : VALERIE LEON AUCTION AND SCREENING OF 'MUMMY'S TOMB' AT BRISTOL IMAX


NEWS: Valerie Leon Auction Event with SCREENING of the Hammer films 'Blood from the Mummy's Tomb'!
 




YES, THAT Hand is crawling back again and IT and the entire movie, can be seen on the giant screen at the Bristol IMAX on Friday 27 October. What’s more, Valerie Leon will be present in person for a Q&A after the screening. There will also be an auction of more than 40 lots from her career, conducted by Bristol’s Auctioneum.




MANY OF US will no doubt note this film as a very sad event also. In the early days of its production, the casting of the character of Prof Fuchs, was played by Peter Cushing. Sadly, Peter's wife Helen, became very ill, Peter had to withdraw from production, to attend to Helen, in what be her last days, a shattering event that would change and reshape Peter's perspective and life, for the rest of his days. Actor Andrew Kerr stepped very quickly to take the role of the professor, and a very performance he gave too.
 
 
 
THIS FRIDAY sounds like a great event for fans of Valerie Leon's work, Hammer films and might also get lucky in bidding on a fine treasure of Leon Lots! . . . - marcus

BOOBS EYES TEETH AND CHICKENS! THE LITTLE EXTRA SASS AND BRUSH WORK FROM THE PRESS AND PUBLICITY DEPT


PRESS OFFICE and PUBLICITY often did incredible and great work, promoting #PeterCushing movies. It's a TOUGH job, but if the current film that is about to be released is a bit of a dud, it's at times like these, the press office would take a little licence and ADD a few spices, half-truths and magic cogs, to the wheels of the publicity machine. Here are a just few, that turned up in some of Cushing's and Hammer movies.. oh and a MOTH from Tigon! Can you think of ANY others?? - Marcus

 






THE ONE TIME the press office 'over-egged it!' The publicity Dept commissioned poster artist Tom Chantrell to design a cinema poster for the Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, last Dracula film together. 
 

Chantrell remembered the pose of the Count he included in Hammer's 'Dracula Has Risen From The Grave' and tweaked it, to include a sacrificial rooster - cockerel in Dracula's hand! This was a little much for the British censor, who gave a No. This time, a scene with the bird, WAS actually included in the film, that was no fiction. But gutted poultry on a cinema poster was seen, as a little too much. ... how things changed!
