Terence Fisher, Paperback / softback Book

Terence Fisher Paperback / softback

Part of the British Film-Makers series

Paperback / softback

Description

Terence Fisher is best known as the director who made most of the classic Hammer horrors - including The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula and The Devil Rides Out.

But there is more to Terence Fisher than Hammer horror.

In a busy twenty-five-year career, he directed fifty films, not just horrors but also thrillers, comedies, melodramas and science-fiction.

This book offers an appreciation of all of Fisher's films and also gives a sense of his place in British film history.

Looking at Fisher's career as a whole not only underlines his importance as a film-maker but also casts a new, interesting light on the areas in which he worked - Gainsborough melodrama, the 1950s B film, 1960s science-fiction and, of course, Hammer, one of the most successful independent film companies in the history of British cinema. -- .
