Pre-1980 Films Added to Freevee UK This Week

Here at Old Time Review, we like to update you on classic pre-1980 films which are available to view on streaming services. According to JustWatch, six titles were added to Freevee this week.


Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter (1974) – Swashbuckling Action Horror from Hammer Film Productions, written and directed by Brian Clemens. Starring ┬áHorst Janson, John Carson, Shane Briant, and Caroline Munro.

The Quatermass Xperiment (1955) – Adaptation of the 1953 BBC television serial The Quatermass Experiment. Science Fiction Horror from Hammer Film Productions, directed by Val Guest. It stars Brian Donlevy, Richard Wordsworth and Jack Warner among others.

Dick Barton Strikes Back (1949) – The third of three films in Hammer Film Productions‘ Dick Barton series. It was directed by Godfrey Grayson and starred Don Stannard and Sebastian Cabot.

Dick Barton at Bay (1950) – The second of three films in Hammer Film Productions‘ Dick Barton series. It was directed by Godfrey Grayson and starred Don Stannard.


The selection of vintage titles is drawn from titles from the history of Hammer Film Productions. These films open with an icon entertainment ident, followed by the famous MGM lion title sequence. This would indicate that these titles are distributed by the Amazon owned MGM brand in the UK. Our picks for this week is the big screen version of Quatermass.

It is unknown why the first film in Hammer’s Dick Barton series, Dick Barton: Special Agent, is not available to stream on Freevee. It is possible that the distribution rights belong to another company.
