Also featuring many new interviews, this is a lavish, full-colour, all-encompassing celebration of Hammer?s female stars.
Marcus Hearn has worked with Hammer Film Productions since 1994, initially as the editor of its official magazine and latterly as a rights and archive consultant With Alan Barnes, he wrote The Hammer Story, the authorised history of the company. Caroline Munro appeared in The Golden Voyage of Sinbad and the two Dr. Phibes movies and Vera Day in Quatermass II.
