More about this item:

This is a rare original photo (14"x 19") of prototype artwork by Chantrell for the unmade Hammer film, "A Scent of New-Mown Hay" c' 1971 (see "Last Bus To Bray" by Glen Davies). Based on a book by John Blackburn, the story featured a Cold War setting & a deadly virus that transforms females into mutant beings. Chantrell's visualisation shows the mutation in process....& in typical fashion (for both Chantrell & Hammer), the prototype presents some OTT nudity (that would never have been allowed on any kind of General Release material).

The photo has one 1/2" nick to edge.
