    Van Helsing was to be married?

    3: Greta was mad servant. I never take note of Hammer female actresses.

    5: Abigail Craine's room.

    6: from memory the girl finds out about a noted Hollywood ACTOR staffslad. That threw me. Do not recall the name of segment tho. But they were machines underneath the skin.

    The last was a segment from Torture Garden if memory serves. I find it harder than most others trying to remember exactly which segment was in which anthology.

    All correct apart from the one about Van Helsing. In the original script for Dracula AD1972, Van Helsing was Jessica Van Helsing's father. However, Peter Cushing had visibly aged so much after his wife's death that it was quickly changed to make Jessica his granddaughter.

    The segment in Torture Garden was called Terror over Hollywood. If I recall correctly, all the segments were based on stories by Robert Bloch, author of Psycho.

    Yes, Greta was the mad servant and was played by Freda Jackson.

    Never knew that about The Cush. Also about segments written by Psycho author. Tho there was a clear American theme to a couple of them. I will post a new one shortly. About to load my washing. Oh fun.

    Here are a few for you, Donald...

    1. Synopsis: Horribly disfigured musician seeks vengeance on doctors he believes let his wife die. What was the film?

    2. In 1. who played the musician's female assistant, who never actually speaks in the film.

    3. In Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter, what was the character name of Kronos's hunchback assistant?

    4. Which actress who went on to have a small but regular part in the Bond films turned up at Hill House late on in Robert Wise's version of The Haunting?

    5. In Plague of the Zombies, what kind of mine did the zombies work in?

    6. Synopsis: A police officer travels to a remote island to investigate a missing girl. What was the 70s film and who played the police officer?

    Good luck

    Abominable Dr Phibes

    He has one of those unpronouncable names. pass

    I seem to recall Lois Maxwell (Miss Moneypenny) had a small role.

    tin mine

    The classic The Wicker Man. Edward Woodward.

    You only missed two. Gorgeous Virginia North played Phibes's assistant, Vulnavia. Professor Hieronymous Grost was assistant to Captain Kronos.

    As a bonus, there is an actress who links both Captain Kronos and Abominable Dr Phibes. Her role in Kronos was far more substantial, yet without her role in Phibes there would be no story. Can you name her?
