Solid Fare



This l'il gem is great fun;

delite to see Cushing & Lee together.

The wonderful Babs Shelley is always a sight for sore eyes !

Tho the f\x is a bit dated coupled w\Bernard's music it works out ok.

There is solid acting all-around and Troughton is sooo versatile.

Barbara Shelley is all right, but I think is too old for this role.

"Cum Grano Salis"

Barbara Shelley is one of my favorite Hammer heroines, and I'm glad she had a lead role. I enjoyed "The Gorgon," despite the low budget special effects. There was some real psychological insight shown into the villagers with their conspiracy of denial at the start of the film.

Indeed she is one of my faves;

can't say enough'bout her. Liked her enormously in "5 Million Miles to Earth"

w\the wonderful Andrew Keir who also starred w\her in "Dracula Has Risen from the Grave"

...and she was delightful in that one as well.

I thought it was so-so. Bit boring in places. Thought Professor Meister shoving the policemen over and Dr Namaroff falling over was quite amusing. But not my favourite Hammer by a long shot.

Pace may have been leisurely .. but rewarding overall-at least, for me !

Exactly. It was OK. There are plenty of Hammer films that surpass this in plot, execution, effects. "The Gorgon' is not terrible but not particularly memorable either.

It wasn't an amazing film but wasn't too bad either. I'd say it was rather average. But worth a watch if you're a fan of Hammer Films and/or Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.
