An original release Quad poster for this 1966 Hammer film. Though only printed in green/black, Chantrell's original artwork was a full colour creation as the attached image below shows. Curiously, Hammer sometimes, abbreviated the colour palette for 1st release posters such as this but re-issues were then treated to full-colour treatment (this counter-intuitive phenomenon shown by the re-release double-bill shown courtesy of www.hammerhorrorposters.weebly.com). However, it is interesting to note that the rather graphic molestation Chantrell depicted in the foreground of his original illustration neither made it on to the original Quad or the re-release.
