About this deal

To be honest, I bought this book guessing that I'll turn every single page of the book looking at the beautiful pictures, than put it on my shelf. Biography: Marcus Hearn was the editor of Hammer Horror magazine, and with co-author Alan Barnes, he has written The Hammer Story, Tarantino A-Zed, and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Everyone remembers the incredible scene in The Vampire Lovers where this beautiful female vampire tries to bite the Baron, and where the latter beheads her with a blade.

The book cover leaves little to the imagination, but putting the titillation appeal aside, this is a great book - and goes some way to filling in many of the blanks left in the absence of those beautiful faces. Secondly, I was very surprised to find that Kirsten Betts, one of the most striking female icons of Hammer, is not even mentioned in this book. Bursting at the seams with rare and previously unpublished photographs from Hammer's archive and private collections worldwide, and featuring many new interviews, "Hammer Glamour" is a lavish, full colour celebration of Hammer's female stars, including Ingrid Pitt, Martine Beswick, Caroline Munro, Barbara Shelley, Joanna Lumley, Nastassja Kinski, and of course Raquel Welch (who can forget her fur bikini in "One Million Years B.This book pays respect to all the glamourous ladies that helped Hammer grow into an internationally acclaimed film studio. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. If truth be told, those insatiably curious about the female form would need only tune in to the Friday night creature feature double bill shown on the BBC.

Great book full of amazing pictures of the very glamorous and beautiful actresses that appeared in the history of Hammer Horror during its history.The photos are fantastic too, the cover photo of the busty Madeline Smith is a perfect choice to capture the look of "Hammer Glamour" as a whole - I'll admit it was a deciding factor in my purchase too! Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. To my surprise, my wife also enjoyed flicking through the pages and commenting on some of the lovely ladies and what they were wearing (or NOT wearing) and agreed it was great addition to my horror collection.

Bursting at the seams with rare and previously unpublished photographs from Hammer's archive and private collections worldwide, and featuring many new interviews, Hammer Glamour is a lavish, full colour celebration of Hammer's female stars, including Ingrid Pitt, Martine Beswick, Caroline Munro, Barbara Shelley, Joanna Lumley, Nastassja Kinski, and of course Raquel Welch (who can forget her fur bikini in One Million Years B.Ja, hier gibt es auch nackte Haut zu sehen, wie zum Beispiel von den Playboy-Zwillinge Model Madeleine Collinson und Mary Collinson (Draculas Hexenjagd - Twins of Evil) oder Veronica Vetri (auch bekannt unter Angela Dorian) zu "Als Dinosaurier die Erde beherrschten - When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth" oder Raquel Welch in sexy Pose (Eine Million Jahre vor unserer Zeit-One Million Years B. New/unread, but some mild wear/damage to its cover and edges (such as scratching, slight creasing, etc. Not at all a book full of naughty pictures (well, some are) but a fantastic insight into the lives of cinema's most overlooked ladies. It's nothing new to say that much of the popularity of the Hammer films can be attributed to the Hammer Girls. If you think the Hammer Studios brought the magic touch to the horror on screen, if the Hammer films are more than just guilty pleasures for you, then like any other Marcus Hearn book, this is a must-have.
