A particularly racey Chantrell illustration for this Trade Ad for the 1970 Hammer Horror film "The Vampire Lovers". It is very unlikely that an illustration of such an explicit nature would have been used for a Quad Poster at this time. In the event, changes with Hammer's distribution arrangements meant that they had less sway over the choice of Poster artists & so though Chantrell contributed pre-production artwork for both this film & "The Horror of Frankenstein" (1970), both Quad commissions were eventually handled by Mike Vaughan (his Poster here shown by way of contrast).
