Harold Robbins was so famous in the sixties, his books were everywhere (my mum loved them), almost totally forgotten now. It just goes to show, er...something or other.

The Plague of the Zombies tonight.

I first saw this a year ago, delighted to discover that it was a clip from this used in the Martin Scorsese-directed Amazing Stories episode "Mirror Mirror." (The nightmarish scene in the graveyard - Brook Williams surrounded by zombies, bloody puddles, mist, shifting Dutch angles.)

I was a fan of The Avengers years before I started watching a lot of these 1960s British movies, so actors Williams and Jacqueline Pearce, who have major roles in this, I only knew for years for their guest shots with John Steed. (There's an abandoned mine in this that I think was also used for The Avengers episode "The Living Dead.")

I do tend to prefer the one-shot Hammer films like this one, The Witches and The Devil Rides Out over the series entries. All three of these are of the "weird underground cult" variety - always good for bizarre tales.

One can ogle Jacqueline Pearce in The Reptile ('66). Plus there are plenty more vintage British television shows besides THE AVENGERS. Pearce appeared twice in MAN IN A SUITCASE and was a BLAKE'S 7 regular.

Indeed. I've been catching up on other shows like The Saint, Strange Report, and, yes, a couple of Man in a Suitcase episodes.

Restoration of the Hammer catalogue-good news.
Remakes of them maybe not so much.
The vibrant colors that add so much to them would disappear..

There would be no classy actors in them, too. Any charm would be lacking. And the stories would be swamped in CGI ( probably crap , too).

The vibrant colours of Dracula (1958) disappeared on the BFI "restoration" whenthey decided on a cyan/blue look for some reason, & the Warner Archive release is too dark. This great film is still in need of a decent HD version. A lot of the films do look great. The Sony restoration of Revenge Of Frankenstein, & a lot of early sixties Hammer's look very nice. I hope we get a decent She (1965) from Warner Archive next year.
