The Powell & Pressburger Pages

Dedicated to the work of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger and all the other people, both actors and technicians who helped them make those wonderful films.

A lot of the documents have been sent to me or have come from other web sites. The name of the web site is given where known. If I have unintentionally included an image or document that is copyrighted or that I shouldn't have done then please email me and I'll remove it.

I make no money from this site, it's purely for the love of the films.

Peeping Tom

UK suspense 1960 color 102 min.

Director: Michael Powell
CLV: $49.95 - 1 disc, catalog # CC1299L
VHS: $29.95 - from Home Vision Cinema

In Michael Powell's kinky tour de force, Mark, an amateur photographer, stabs women with the sharpened leg of his camera tripod, then films their death throes, playing the movies back later for his own pleasure.

Hailed as a masterpiece for its frank exploration of voyeurism and violence, Peeping Tom is a Criterion laserdisc exclusive.

Featuring a new film-to-video transfer and audio commentary by noted film theorist Laura Mulvey discussing the film's controversial psychological obsessions.
