“Do you know what the most FRIGHTENING thing in the world is …?”
An incredibly rare find, a country of origin UK quad film poster for Michael Powell’s disturbing 1960 voyeuristic thriller “Peeping Tom”. One of the most distinctive and best designed of any posters from the genre and rightly regarded as a British classic and highly sought after by collectors. “Peeping Tom” was not a great commercial success at the time of its release, and was largely over shadowed by Hitchcock’s “Psycho” and often treated as a film ‘way ahead of its time’ with filmgoers reluctant to see it due to Powell’s controversial content. Paper from it has always been somewhat scarce with British UK quad posters particularly hard to find. Originally folded (as issued) and totally unrestored this particular example displays to excellent effect with deep, dark, unfaded colours and memorable ‘eye in keyhole’ imagery…It is easily the finest example of this rare poster I have ever offered for sale and confident it is currently the best available on the market and represents a true investment grade piece of original highly collectable cinema movie memorabilia.
