    lol I've not heard of that Iron Man character before. Thanks very much. My love of Hammer, Amicus and British horror in general comes from too many late nights in the 70s and 80s staying up to watch ATV's Appointment with Fear slot and the BBC's summer saturday night's horror double bills, plus devouring all the horror film books I could find and afford.

    . Name the film.

    4: Who played the character of Paul Krempe in Curse of Frankenstein

    5: Name the actress.



    Well done, Donald. The only one not correct is Watson in Hammer's Hound of the Baskervilles. The Cush played Holmes, but Watson was played by Andre Morell, many people's choice as the best Quatermass for his performance in the BBC serial of Quatermass and the Pit in 1958.

    The Joan Collins film I saw under its UK title of I don't want to be Born. It's obviously inspired by The Exorcist.



    1. I think that is Satan's Slave, a film I think I saw once on video in the early 80s prior to the VRA coming into force.

    2. Did you mean character or actor names? Wasn't sure, so they are Michael Gough as the uncle, Alexander York, and Candice Glendenning as Catherine York.

    3. I think that is The Skull.

    4. That would be Robert Urquhart.

    5. I think that is Candice Glendenning. I remember her from Blake's Seven and Angels.

    You are too good staffslad.. notioned the Robert Urquart question may stump you. No I only wanted their professional names..sorry to confuse. Sitting up watching those late horrors in your youth has obviously paid dividends. You should go one of those tv quiz shows. Mastermind springs to mind as you could have Brit horror cinema as your category. Shall we add all Brit horror films up to the the 80s now as we are starting to exhaust Hammer/Amicus?

    You are too kind, Donald. I fear my knowledge would be lacking in a contest like Mastermind, particularly when time in answering is so important

    I don't mind taking it to the 80s as well, though I fear anything later than that will show me up as I just stopped watching British horror films after the end of the 80s. For me, their character began to change and I found I was much happier and getting more from films made in the 60s to 80s.

    Anyway, I think it is my turn now, so I will come up with a few more and post them later today.

    Okay, here are some:

    1. There were two films produced in the UK, one in the 60s and one in the 70s, in which Sherlock Holmes tracked down Jack the Ripper. Can you name the two films? Hints...In the 60s film there is a connection to a famous blonde female Carry On star, and in the 70s film there is a connection to a famous male actor in The Sound of Music.

    2. An actor probably best known for showing his backside in the Confessions series of smutty comedies made a gory horror film in the 70s that had a medical setting. Can you name film and actor?

    3. In Frankenstein must be Destroyed, there was a scene that very much affected Peter Cushing and that he hated having to do. In fact, he was so upset he took leading lady Veronica Carlson to dinner to apologise. Can you describe what Cushing had to do in that scene?

    4. Frankie Howard made a comedy horror set in a creepy old house in the 70s. Can you name the film?

    5. What was the title of the film Hammer shot in Hong Kong in which the Cush played Van Helsing for the last time? Hint...this was also a last gasp for Hammer.

    I hope it's okay to just know one answer. The House in Nightmare Park is a Frankie Howerd Film I remember along with the much earlier Runaway Bus and some of the St.Trinian's things.

    1. One film is Murder by Decree with Christopher Plummer as Holmes. The famous Carry On blonde has to be Barbara Windsor. Connection she played one of the victims is all I can come up with. I have not seen this evidently.

    2. Robin Asquith? Film I do not know.

    3. That is a deep question. Will get back to you on it.

    4. Another member has answered this.

    5.The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires. Have never seen it even tho The Cush is in it.

    Sorry for the poor effort staffslad.
