Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde (1971) is a classic Hammer horror film directed by Roy Ward Baker. The film was their third adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella, and is notable for showing Jekyll transform into a female Hyde. The two characters are played by the film’s stars, Ralph Bates and Martine Beswick.
An Evening With Martine Beswick
Sat 8 Dec 2018 @ 20:00
Come and spend an evening with Bond Girl Martine Beswick. She was cast in the second film From Russia with Love(1963) as the fiery gypsy girl, Zora and engaged in a “catfight” scene with her rival Vida. She then appeared as the ill-fated Paula Caplan in Thunderball(1965). She went on to appear in One Million Years B.C. (1966) opposite Raquel Welch, with whom she also engaged in a catfight, followed by other Hammer Studio films, including the gender-bending Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde (1971). Martine will be interviewed by Misty Moon’s MC Linda Regan, and then take part in a paid signing. More details here.
Madame X, directed by David Lowell Rich, was the fifth American remake of the work by French playwright Alexandre Bisson, starring Lana Turner as a lower class woman who marries into a wealthy family who look down on her and her wretched past. This film is not subtle. It’s tawdry, trashy and crazy fun. And to quote critic Pauline Kael: “With almost every line a howler, this is a camp special.” Madame X is “A Ross Hunter Production” from start to finish. Not to be missed.
