More about this item:

An original printer's proof (15"x 19") for a pre-production flyer relating to the Hammer project "When The Earth Cracked Open" (c' 1971-72). Chantrell's attractive design was published & used to try & secure publicity & funding for the mooted film, though ultimately it was never made. The design was of course far more explicit than anything Hammer could get poster-wise past the censors at the time. The statuesque female is clearly modelled on Ursula Andress. Whether Ms Andress was aware of the plagiarisation of her image in such a fashion is unknown but she just might have been flattered by Chantrell's enticing depiction! The cut-out portion is where the printed script "This Is a Hammer Film" would have been positioned.


A fabulous piece of Hammer memorabilia that would look great framed.
