Movies based on novels by Donald Hamilton

I'm building a gallery of pressbooks, posters and other movie memorabilia from film adaptations of Hamilton's novels on this site. These pages are a work in progress. I'm also building a cover gallery of his books, a page of online references with many movie-related links, and a list of short/serial fiction and articles. If you have any movie-related images or anything else interesting that should be here, please email Mark Martinez, stcomix at mac dot com. Thanks.

Looking for something to read or watch? Here's what's in print. An e-book about the Matt Helm films, Booze, Bullets & Broads, was published in 2013.
