Original publicity still negatives from THEATRE OF BLOOD

A couple of years ago, an eBay seller in Canada offered a group of original publicity still negatives for sale.  They seemed to be photos that, for the most part, I'd never seen before. I purchased them and had them scanned so that I could make digital positives.  I think they're stunning.

Dennis Price as Hector Snipe

Coral Browne, post hairdresser appointment, as Chloe Moon

Michael Hordern as first victim George Maxwell

Robert Morley, without poodles, as Meredith Merridew

Ian Hendry as Peregrine Devlin

Milo O'Shea as Inspector Boot

Eric Sykes as Sergeant Dogge

Madeline Smith as Devlin's secretary Rosemary

Harry Andrews as Trevor Dickman

Vincent Price as Edward Lionheart, performing Julius Caesar

Price as the gravedigger at Snipe's funeral

Price as Lionheart, preparing some radical surgery on Arthur Lowe

Vincent as Lionheart as Shylock

Lionheart as Richard III

Best of all, most of the cast assembled on the steps of the chapel at Kensal Green Cemetery in London

    1. A couple of them show up from time to time elsewhere, but I've never seen that incredible group shot anywhere else!

  2. These are great! Thanks for sharing them!
