From Michael Powell, the acclaimed director of A Matter of Life and Death and The Red Shoes, PEEPING TOM was, upon its release, one of the most controversial films ever made in Britain - a masterpiece of psychological terror. By day, Mark Lewis (Karlheinz Böhm) works as a modest focus-puller in a film studio. But he also shoots glamour photographs for a seedy Soho newsagent, and by night he seeks victims for his most gruesome obsession - filming the face of mortal fear, moments before death. Written by British cryptographer and playwright Leo Marks, PEEPING TOM also stars Moira Shearer, Anna Massey, Shirley Anne Field and real-life Glamour Queen Pamela Green and was shot by celebrated Director of Photography Otto Heller (The Queen of Spades, The Ladykillers, Victim).
