Brian Cle­mens on Ham­mer’s Dr Jekyll And Sis­ter Hyde

SFX - - Brian clemens -

“I was at lunch with direc­tor Roy Ward Baker and Ham­mer’s Jimmy Car­reras was at the next ta­ble, and we were say­ing about Ham­mer, ‘ Where does Ham­mer go now?’ and I said, ‘ I’ve got it – it’s Dr Jekyll And

Sis­ter Hyde’ and they all fell about laugh­ing. At the end of lunch I got up to go and Jimmy took my arm and asked me ‘ Can you come to my of­fice on Tues­day?’ – this was on Fri­day I think, so I get to Ham­mer House on the Tues­day, go up in the lift, and as I get out, there’s a huge poster for Dr Jekyll And

Sis­ter Hyde, which I hadn’t writ­ten, no deal done. You could work on a word of hon­our and a hand­shake.”
