“From flesh and innocence…Frankenstein has created the ultimate in evil- a beautiful woman with the soul of the devil !”
A scarce original Japanese B2 film poster and one of Hammer’s best for Terence Fisher’s 1967 dark metaphysical horror “Frankenstein Created Woman”…The fourth entry in Hammer’s Frankenstein canon this stunning piece is a personal favourite and featured in Marcus Hearn’s excellent book “The Art of Hammer”. Originally rolled (as issued) and unrestored, it has some of the most memorable imagery of any Hammer poster…the image of Peter Cushing caressing a human skull and a bikini made of bandages are trademark Hammer. Presented in excellent high grade condition with minimal handling wear this represents a superb example of Hammer Horror cinema memorabilia.
Trivia: “Frankenstein Created Woman” was originally mooted as a follow-up to “The Revenge of Frankenstein” during its production in 1958, at a time when Roger Vadim’s Et Dieu créa la femme (And God Created Woman) was successful (in fact, the film’s original working title was “And Then Frankenstein Created Woman”). The film finally went into production at Bray Studios on 4 July 1966. It was Hammer’s penultimate production there.…more detail
