Arthur Grant


Arthur Grant (1915-1972) was one of Hammer Studios' most prolific cinematographers. His first Hammer film as Director of Photography was The Abominable Snowman in 1957. In the early 1960s, he gradually replaced Jack Asher as Hammer's regular cinematographer. Asher's techniques were notoriously slow and expensive - if producing impressive results. Grant's tenure saw the Studio through many of its greatest productions, including The Curse of the Werewolf (1961), Quatermass and the Pit (1967) and Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969).

Incidentally, he was not related to Hammer cinematographer and cameraman Moray Grant.
