    Great news on another Hammer set and great titles. I was worried that they would skip these two WWII Hammers. Yesterdays Enemy is a very intense and underrated gem with a great performance by Stanley Baker. I hope they do all the Hammer Swashbucklers too but they will need a 5th box to get all the remaining Columbia Hammers that they still have: Sword of Sherwood Forest, The Devil-ship pirates, The crimson blade, the brighand of Kandahar, Scream of Fear, Revenge of Frankenstein, Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll and Creatures the World Forgot.

    FOOTSTEPS IN THE FOG is, in my opinion, Arthur Lubin's best film. When I briefly knew him in the early 70's, and asked him about his career, I did not even know about this film, and he did not mention it. I was certainly familiar with THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1943) and his work with Abbott and Costello, the Francis the Talking Mule films (and subsequent Mr. Ed series on t.v.), and ALI BABA AND THE FORTY THIEVES. But I only finally caught up with FOOTSTEPS relatively recently, and it's an amazingly cohesive and atmospheric costume thriller that falls right in line along with classics like the superior 1940 Anton Walbrook version of GASLIGHT. Nicely photographed in color and well-acted by Stewart Granger and Jean Simmons. I highly recommend it!
