It was amazing to see actors like Peter Cushing, who I first saw in Star Wars and Christopher Lee, whom I'd seen but didn't really recognize until the late 1990s in films like Sleepy Hollow and The Lord of the Rings films. Cushing and Lee looked so young in films like The Curse of Frankenstein in 1956! Even Oliver Reed, who I wasn't familiar with until Gladiator in 2000 after his death looked extremely young in his first starring role in 1960's The Curse of the Werewolf!
If you've ever been curious about some of the classic horror movies of the 1950s and '60s, The Hammer Vault is an amazing way to learn about them. Even though each film only gets a page or two in the book, you get a quick glimpse at the past to see how these films have had a lasting effect into the present day. Plus, it's a beautiful coffee table book!
