Oh, for the simpler times when a local council office might put on the gothic delights of a Hammer great for the enjoyment of residents. Now it's all "raves" and "car meets" and "mash-up crunk-offs" or something.*mamawaldi wrote:Just got back from watching a new print of Dracula at the local Town Hall. It's the Hammer 1958 version. Jolly good fun what, and Peter Cushing was a great, great Van Helsing. Never mind Hugh Jackman's big leather coat and gadgets, Cushing saw Dracula off with nothing more than a pair of candlesticks whilst clad in a snug fitting tweed suit.
Dracula on the big screen is fantastic enough. But what a wonderfully quaint setting. I guess it still looks good as ever?
