Here's the UK pressbook for Hammer's Fear in the Night, with Peter Cushing, Ralph Bates, Judy Geeson, and Joan Collins. I like Peter Cushing's comment in the Press Features that he wanted to be a cowboy like Tom Mix.
Long time fiend from Zombos' Closet, Tony Rivers, often sighted prowling around the Classic Horror Film Board, strikes once again, with his pressbook scans for Jungle Captive, with Vicky Lane as the Ape Woman. The lobby ballyhoo and poster cut-outs must have been awesome to see.
The UK pressbooks for horror and terror movies are normally so neat and proper, you'd expect a cup of tea being sipped while perusing them. Here's the pressbook for Hammer's Demons of the Mind, filled with depravity, incest, and torture. Have a scone on me.
Having said that the German pressbooks I've seen are usually one big sheet fold-outs, of course I catch this one for 4D Man (1959) tumbling out of the closet. It's one long, narrow sheet that unfolds. Very stylish.
Here's a German pressbook for Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed. The German pressbooks I've seen so far are usually a one sheet fold-out with a splendid scene-rich centerfold. They also include the ad mats on cheap pulp paper to be cut out and used in newspapers.
Oh, those wild beatniks. Wild, wild, wild. Could never get the hang of those bongos, though. Rhythm's just not my bag, man. But I dug the tights the women wore. Slinky and sexy. One of the best horror movies with a beatnik atmosphere is A Bucket of Blood. Sherlock Holmes once quipped about "art in the blood" when discussing Mycroft, but A Bucket of Blood posits blood-in-the-art for a nice kick in the jive. A bucket's worth, more or less.
