London: Hammer Films, 1968. Vintage press photograph from the 1968 film. With stamp and mimeograph snipe from the Associated Press on the verso, identifying actress Dana Gillespie, here posed with a giant scorpion, as a champion junior water skier.

Based on the 1938 novel "Uncharted Sea" by Dennis Wheatley, about the passengers and crew of a steamer run aground on an island in the Saragasso Sea, filled (as one would expect) with man-eating seaweed, giant crabs, even more giant scorpions, pirates, and the descendants of Spanish Conquistadors who believe the Inquisition is still on.

6 x 8 inches, with a wide bottom margin. Near Fine.
