Hammer Films is to Hollywood what Ramsay Films is to Bollywood. The Hammer films were notoriously famous in Hollywood for their material. Yvonne Monlaur, an actress who acted in the Hammer Films from the late fifties to the late sixties and appeared in around 30 Hammer productions is no more. Yvonne retired from films in the early seventies, but left an indelible mark on the entire Horror film industry with her performances in films like Circus of Horrors (1960), The Brides of Dracula (1960) and The Terror of Tongs (1961).
The announcement was made by her friend, via a blog that Yvonne maintained even after she retired. You can view the blog via this link.
