First Release Daybill Poster. Revenge Of Frankenstein was banned in Australia when it was first due for release in 1958. Eventually in 1969 it was released to cinemas in Australia for the first time with this Daybill poster. Directed by Terence Fisher, the film starred Peter Cushing, Francis Matthews, Michael Gwynn and Eunice Gayson. The film was shot at Bray Studios and production commenced on January 6, 1958, three days after filming wrapped on Dracula (1958), which likewise starred Cushing and was directed by Fisher. Conductor and composer Leonard Salzedo was hired to write the score,and most of the regular Hammer crew returned in other roles, including Jack Asher as cinematographer, Bernard Robinson on design and Phil Leakey on make-up. In the United States, it was released in June, 1958 on a double bill with Curse of the Demon. The Revenge of Frankenstein was a sequel to The Curse of Frankenstein, the studio's 1957 adaptation of Mary Shelley's 1818 novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus and the second instalment in their Frankenstein series. Critics called The Revenge of Frankenstein "a high grade horror film" with "rich" production values and a script that was "well-plotted, peopled with interesting characters, aided by good performances." Like many Hammer films, any original posters are highly collectible.
