Terence Fisher

Terence Fisher, 1904-1980, British film director.

Fisher directed such offerings as Stolen Face (1952) and Spaceways (1953) for Hammer Films before being offered The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), in which he worked with Peter Cushing. Later projects included Dracula (1958), The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958, again with Cushing), The Mummy (1959), The Man Who Could Cheat Death (1959), and The Brides of Dracula (1960). The Phantom of the Opera (1962) was a commercial failure, and Hammer dropped Fisher for a time, but he returned to direct Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969).
