Prior to her death, Hammer horror muse narrated animated short film about her childhood experience of the Holocaust
As an icon of early 70s horror, she remained a source of fascination for fans more than 40 years after her gruesome heyday. But Ingrid Pitt, who died earlier this week at the age of 73, had experienced real-life youthful terrors which may yet see her making one last turn.
It is well documented that Pitt, the daughter of a Polish Jewish mother and German father, survived the Stutthof concentration camp during the second world war. Now a Us film-making team has revealed that prior to her death, the Hammer horror favourite collaborated on an animated short film about her experiences.
Pitt provided voiceover narration for Ingrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest, working with twice Academy award-nominated film-maker Bill Plympton, director and co-producer Kevin Sean Michaels and a 10-year-old animator, Perry Chen.
