This month marks the 75th anniversary of Hammer Films. In November of 1934 the failed comedian and successful jeweler William Hinds (stage name Will Hammer) formed Hammer Productions Ltd. that would later be known as “The Studio That Dripped Blood.”
I’ve decided to postpone Modern Mondays and all other activity at Cinebeats to spend the rest of the month celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Hammer Films with a special look at some of the female stars of Hammer movies. These glamourous, beautiful and talented actresses often get overshadowed by their iconic male costars but from November 24-30th Cinebeats will be shining a spotlight on them and highlighting some of their best performances and most important movies.
Move over Christopher Lee! Make way Peter Cushing! Roll out the red carpet for Hammer Glamour week here at Cinebeats!
