Original Italian Four Sheet (55x79). Folded. Very Good Plus

Original Italian Four Sheet (55x79) for the Michael Powell horror thriller, PEEPING TOM (1960) starring Karlheinz Bohm, Moira Shearer, and Anna Massey. The poster is a re-release in Italy from sometime in the 1960s. Four foglio posters for this film, whether for the first release or this subsequent re-release have been scarce. This lurid tale chronicles a lonely, unfriendly, and sexually repressed young man (Bohm), who is obsessed with the effects of fear and uses his movie camera to film the dying expressions of terror on the women he kills. Director Powell positions his camera directly behind murderer Mark, thus making the audience unwilling accomplices in these despicable acts of violence. Whatever the real reason for Powell making this film, he signed his careerÕs death warrant with its release. The film opened to scathing reviews in April 1960, just months after Alfred HitchcockÕs similarly themed PSYCHO (1960). Powell made only one more film before exiling himself to Australia. This original Italian poster is folded. The bottom section has some edge wear along one side and a small tear which incurs into the image area. We have graded this poster in very good plus condition because of this issue. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
