REFERRING BACK to our previous post today, on the subject of salaries and profits, it wasn't common knowledge until very recently that SCARS was the most profitable Dracula film for Lee. His contract stipulated that he was to receive a percentage of the film's profits, making it not only his most profitable Dracula film, but quite likely his most profitable Hammer film of them all! The death scene unfortunately, scuppered the spectacular planned death of another Hammer Lee character many years later, when Lee played Father Michael in the 1976, 'To The Devil A Daughter'..last minute changes to his death scene resulted in a duff anti climax to the film, and still many years later, Hammer fans are scratching their heads in confusion at the improvised ending of what would be Hammer's last Horror film, for quite sometime.
