Movie Clip

Maniac (1963) - Open, The Camargue Fairly screeching opening, from Jimmy Sangster’s original screenplay, we meet handyman Janiello (Arnold Diamond) in extreme close-up, observing innocent Annette (Liliane Brousse) after school, on the genuine location near the French Mediterranean coast, Michael Carreras directing, in Hammer Films’ Maniac, 1963, with Kerwin Mathews and Nadia Gray.
Maniac (1963) - If You've Finished Sulking Following the nasty murder of a handyman, in southern France, by the father of schoolgirl (Liliane Brousse) he assaulted, she appears again as we meet leading man Kerwin Mathews, as American Jeff, serving him a drink, with local cop Salon (Norman Bird), when his fuming English girlfriend (Justine Lord as Grace) arrives, in the Hammer Films contemporary thriller, Maniac, 1963.
Maniac (1963) - He's Not Coming Back Soon? American Jeff (Kerwin Mathews), who’s supposed to be painting in southern France, visited by Eve (Nadia Gray), Mme. Beynat, from whom he’s renting a room, looking to win his attention away from her fetching daughter, and providing the link, which we could only have inferred so far, to the opening murder, in the Hammer Films thriller Maniac, 1963.
Maniac (1963) - At A Formidable Speed Having fixed the juke box at the road-house where he’s lodging in remote southern France, American Jeff (Kerwin Mathews), abandoned by his wealthy girlfriend, hangs with cop Salon (Norman Bird) then dances with enchanted hostess Annette (Liliane Brousse), her mother (Nadia Gray), the proprietor, worried, in Hammer Films’ Maniac, 1963.
Brides Of Dracula, The (1960) - We Pray For Death Marianne (Yvonne Monlaur) the visiting French teacher, unaware of the vampire business, doing well not being shocked at how the Baroness (Martita Hunt) treats her maybe-mad son, whom she accidentally saw, whereupon he (David Peel) explains his perspective, in Hammer Films’ The Brides Of Dracula, 1960.
Brides Of Dracula, The (1960) - Monarch Of All Vampires Opening with plenty-chilling narration, from Hammer Films’ and director Terence Fisher, French Marianne (Yvonne Monlaur) rides into Transylvania with a nervous driver (Michael Ripper) and a lurking spook (Michael Mulcaster), in the 1960 monster spinoff The Brides Of Dracula, starring Peter Cushing.
Brides Of Dracula, The (1960) - There's Been A Death In The Village Thirty-minutes into the picture, after teacher Marianne (Yvonne Monlaur) has fled nasty doings at the castle in Transylvania, she’s saved by top-billed Peter Cushing, in his first scene, as Van Helsing, the innkeeper and wife (Norman PIerce, Vera Cook) with further news, in The Brides Of Dracula, 1960.
Brides Of Dracula, The (1960) - The Master's Waiting For You Van Helsing (Peter Cushing), rightly suspecting that servant Greta (Freda Jackson) is with the vampires, catches her coaching the freshly dead “village girl” (Marie Devereux) on rising from the grave, the priest (un-credited actor!) assisting after she transforms, in Hammer Films’ The Brides Of Dracula, 1960.
Horror Of Dracula (1958) - Opening Two simple shots, the opening from Hammer Films’ Horror Of Dracula, 1958, only the studio’s second color horror film and the international hit that led to the studio’s commitment to the genre, starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee.
Horror Of Dracula (1958) - Get Some Color Back Into Those Cheeks Without revealing that he’s a vampire hunter, Van Helsing (Peter Cushing, not seen here) has just told Arthur and Mina (Michael Gough, Melissa Stribling) of the death of Harker, fiancè to his sister Lucy (Carol Marsh), who has strangely taken ill, in Hammer Films’ Horror Of Dracula, 1958.
Horror Of Dracula (1958) - Why All The Garlic Flowers? First appearance of Peter Cushing as Van Helsing, in tiny Klausenburg investigating the disappearance of Harker, whom we know died at the hands of Count Dracula, George Woodbridge and Barbara Archer at the inn, in Hammer Films’ Horror Of Dracula, 1958.
Horror Of Dracula (1958) - Those Marks On Her Neck Mina (Melissa Stribling) has asked Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) for a second opinion on the condition of her sister-in-law Lucy (Carol Marsh), who is suddenly anemic, after her fiancè Jonathan, his colleague, disappeared hunting vampires, in Hammer Films’ Horror Of Dracula, 1958.
