To the Devil a Daughter was the final film of Hammer Film Productions. The studio rose to prominence with films such as Curse of Frankenstein (1957) and Horror of Dracula (1958). Unlike those staged, period pieces, this film is set in contemporary times and shot on location. It represented a big departure for Hammer, but it was too little too late.
Rasputin: The Mad Monk opens with Rasputin, played by Christopher Lee, arriving at an inn and demanding wine. When he's told the innkeeper is unavailable due to his ill wife, an annoyed Rasputin marches upstairs. He storms into the bedroom, and proceeds to will the disease out of the frail woman, drawing it into his now red-hot hands.
