RIP Jimmy Sangster

Hammer Films screenwriter Jimmy Sangster (1927-2011) passed away on 19 August at the age of 83.  Sangster is best known for writing the adaptations for such Hammer classics (and personal favorites of mine) as The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) and Dracula (1958) as well as a long list of other credits.  Check out the official notice from Hammer Films here.
