More about this item:

An original single-sided uncut proof flyer (12"x 15") for the Hammer project "When The Earth Cracked Open" (c'1971-72).

Chantrell was employed by Hammer to design artwork to help secure finance for the film, though in this case the film was never made. Initially the film was conceptualised in a prehistoric "One Million Years" format as shown. The printed leaflet was of course far more explicit than anything Hammer could hope to present ouitside cinemas at the time. The statuesque female is clearly modelled on Ursula Andress. Whether Ms Andress was aware of the plagiarisation of her image in such a fashion is unknown but she just might have been flattered by Chantrell's enticing depiction. .

The flyer has minor creasing only, is in very good condition overall & would frame up beautifully. A fine piece of Chantrell-Hammer memorabilia.
