Actress Christine Norden was married five times and has one of the craters of the planet Venus named after her as a tribute to her being a “forerunner of the modern sex symbol.”


It is round about this time that Hammer made their “permanent” home at Bray Studios. Although they had used the building next door, Oakley Court, in earlier productions, the first film made at the studios themselves was “Cloudburst” (1951).

Also at this time, Hammer concluded a deal for US distribution with Lippert Films. Now able to spend more money, the films from now on generally show a marked improvement in production values. This filmography will reflect this change by giving, where possible, details of the American Distributor.
