Hello everyone,

I have just learned the sad news that Hammer Films veteran screenwriter and director Jimmy Sangster has passed away aged 83. Here are links to several online obituaries:

I know that some CLW members had met Jimmy Sangster and will no doubt have personal memories that they may wish to share. Unfortunately, I never had the pleasure of making his acquaintance. I have a book in my collection entitled Inside Hammer by Jimmy Sangster which I have not yet fully read. I am sure that he will be sadly missed by many across the world, especially Hammer enthusiasts. My condolences to his family, friends and loved ones.

RIP Jimmy Sangster (December 2nd, 1927 - August 19th, 2011). God bless.
