“Behold a savage world where men are slaves to desire…and women are their demanding masters !”
One of the most memorable of all Hammer posters and that’s not just because of the scantily clad prehistoric cave girl Tom Chantrell artwork, but Hammer in their marketing wisdom produced the poster with a bright day-glo pink finish for the 1967 UK quad of Michael Carreras’ “Slave Girls”. For comparison included with this poster is Tom Chantrell’s own full colour promotional photograph (which shows he has hand-tinted in certain areas – hair, bikini & vegetation showing the original title “Prehistoric Women” & accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity from the Chantrell Estate) which was used by Hammer and Chantrell to show investors and distributors prior to the film actually going in to full production. This was a cost effective and unique ploy which Hammer used very well for several of their films. Extremely scarce this country of origin example British quad film poster is from first year of release 1967. Totally original and unrestored this sought after example needs to be seen in the flesh to be fully appreciated. Sorry I just can’t get the ‘pink’ to pop in the photos as it does in real life. Originally folded (as issued) this exceptional poster has stood the test of time well and displays to excellent effect. One of the best examples of British Hammer movie poster artwork available; a real personal favourite. Incredibly collectible it represents a fine piece of British movie memorabilia.
Trivia: Shot in only four weeks using sets and costumes from One Million Years B.C. (1966), in order to offset the earlier film’s cost of £140,000 pounds.
