Peeping Tom

Relating to the film Peeping Tom.

A couple of Italian posters for Michael Powell’s classic British film Peeping Tom (1960), in which Pamela Green starred as Milly. Nice to see her name on a poster for once.

This is a bit of a special treat. A rare photo of Weegee being photographed by Pam (1959). Never before published. Weegee was a very frequent visitor to the studio in Gerrard Street. He also visited the set of Peeping Tom while they were filming. I wonder if he took any photos on set.

 

This three page comic adaptation, of the scene in which Pam gets murdered, appeared in the italian magazine Diva: Cinema 1951 -1965. It accompanied the article Dalla parte del mostro PEEPING TOM (1960) and was published back in 1989. I’m afraid I don’t know who the artist is.

The poster for the US release of Peeping Tom (1960) panders towards the exploitation B-movie genre far more than the UK poster. It’s also a lot rarer.

He was raised by a psychologist father who used Mark as a subject for his own studies of fear and the exposure has left him marked psychologically so that he now is compelled to continue his search for women he murders for the camera as he films their reactions. Mark lives in the upper floors of his family house where he also has his photo lab and rents the downstairs to Helen Stephens (Anna Massey) and her blind mother Mrs. Stephens (Maxine Audley) whom he avoids until one day on Helen's birthday when the young nubile girl introduces herself to the photographer and they feel a connection. Mark trusts Helen enough to show her the films that his psychologist father took of him as a boy and the images disturb the girl but draws her closer to Mark. Mark's jobs as studio camera man for a film studio and cheesecake photographer for a local photo shop allows him easy access to women whom he murders while photographing to show their reactions to fear. When Helen accidentally sees some of his killing films she is appalled but wants to help Mark but the release of his secret is too much to bear as the police close in. ...Peeping Tom ( Face of Fear ) ( Röntgenci )
