Hammer Film Productions is celebrated for a series of Gothic horror films made in the 1950s, '60s, and '70s. Founded in 1934, the British production company brought to life in vivid color classic horror characters such as Baron Victor Frankenstein, Count Dracula, and the Mummy. In doing so, cinema audiences were introduced to several actors who would later become known throughout the world, names such as Christopher Lee, Oliver Reed, and Peter Cushing. Hammer remains a great British film brand and, while currently dormant, has secured its place as one of the most innovative movie studios in cinema history.
