NB. Up until the end of 1969 Hammer relied heavily on US finance & the distribution conglomerate Warner-Pathe but when Warner-Pathe split at the end of 1969, Hammer increasingly had to rely on UK distributors such as Rank & EMI & as both had existing arrangements with ad agencies (to some extent) Hammer lost control over the commissioning of final poster designs. Hence Chantrell continued to produce roughs & prototypes for Hammer after 1970 but his work did not always translate to the finished printed poster.
