Horror of of Dracula-1958 by 4gottenlore Horror of of Dracula-1958 by 4gottenlore
Horror of of Dracula-1958

Based on the 1958 Hammer Studios version of the vampire classic "Dracula" and called "Horror of Dracula" in the US, starred Peter Cushing as Van Helsing and Christopher Lee as Dracula. This is one not to miss and is a great classic of horror cinema. The image here is a mix n' match including elements from the US and UK promotional posters. Example here:[link]

Nice work.
Now this will make you cry.
I knew Tom Chantrell well, who did many of the Hammer Posters. 
Our photographic company printed his original black and white pictures which he worked from for the movie posters.
AND... a lot of his pictures in the 1970's were discarded and thrown in the bin. I wanted to keep them, but for copyright they had to be thrown.

Ah, one of my all-time favourite vampire films! Although very little of it resembles the book, for me, it's the ultimate Dracula film. It was just a brilliant film! Love it to death (literally) and it just wasn't Lee's Dracula. It was primarily Cushing's Van Helsing.
