    Susan George. Fright yes. The Dr Who hint threw me. One of the best things Ian Bannen did in my view.

    Ian Ogilvy?

    Has to be Faye Dunaway.

        Susan George and Ian Ogilvy, yes. Ogilvy played Simon Templar in the 70s show Return of the Saint.

        Not Faye Dunaway. She was in Mommie Dearest, but I meant the subject of Mommie Dearest, Joan Crawford, whom she played. Joan played a scientist in Trog from 1970, probably a film she wasn't so proud of, and it doesn't turn up that much on TV anymore.

          The first Hammer film was The Public Life of Henry the Ninth in 1935. The studio's first foray into colour, gothic horror was Curse of Frankenstein in 1957. The first film that really put them in the public gaze was probably The Quatermass Xperiment.

          The Quatermass teleplays were written by Nigel Kneale.

          I would class the third British horror film maker as being Tigon. It was founded by Tony Tenser in 1966. It's 3 best films were imo The Sorcerers, Witchfinder General and Blood on Satan's Claw, though, personally, I do not like WG that much.


          I will get back to you on the pic.

                  Here are a few:


                  1. In Dracula, Prince of Darkness how did the Count meet his end?

                  2. Which crazy monk was played by Christopher Lee in a 1966 Hammer film?

                  3. What part did Peter Cushing play in From Beyond the Grave?

                  4. In the same film, a famous father and daughter played, appropriately enough, father and daughter in one story. Who were they?

                  5. Synopsis: A Cornish village is plagued by a mysterious sickness and a famous London doctor is called in to investigate. He finds that those who have died have been seen walking around near a local tin mine. What was the film?

                  6. Who wrote the novel upon which the Hammer film The Devil Rides Out was based?

                  7. In Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde, who played Sister Hyde and which real-life pair of body stealers were featured?

                    The pic you posted was from Torture Garden, showing Dr. Diabolo and Atropos, with Burgess Meredith and Clyttie Jessup. I suppose the obvious one would be either Burgess Meredith or Peter Cushing, so I shall go for Michael Ripper and Bernard Kay. Isn't this the one with the killer piano?

                        Will have a think about 1 and 6.

                        2: Rasputin

                        3: The owner of the shop.

                        4: Donald and Angela Pleasence.

                        5: Plague Of the Zombies?

                        7: This lady. Martine Beswick.

                            Correct, Donald. Interestingly, Rasputin and Dracula, Prince of Darkness shared a number of cast members and were, I believe, paired on a double bill at their time of release.
