From the Back Cover:

Hammer Films remain on record as the most consistently successful and influential British film company in history. And while Hammer may be best-known for their notorious series of gory Dracula movies, bloody Frankenstein adventures and chilling, satanic epics, few films had a greater impact on the '60s than the unforgettable genre known as "Hammer Glamours."

The "Hammer Glamour" epics delivered their own singular vision of history -- and especially pre-history -- with liberal doses of both flesh and fantasy. With special effects as eye-popping as the actresses, these films created puberty's essential bridge between the thrill of cool monsters and the sensation of gorgeous women. (In the 1966 Hammer classic ONE MILLION YEARS B.C., Raquel Welch's doeskin and fur bikini becomes noticeably smaller and smaller throughout the film, an iconic image that decorated the bedroom walls of virtually every adolescent boy through the decade). If you're a student of anthropology, this is a world you may not recognize. But if you're looking for a twisted vision of the past that only Hammer can provide, you've come to the right place. The Hammer Glamour legacy lives, and indeed the world has never been the same.

Narrated by Oliver Reed.
