The Collector

Culver City, CA: Columbia Pictures, 1965. Vintage borderless photograph of director William Wyler and actor Terence Stamp on the set of the 1965 film. With holograph annotations on the verso.

Based on the 1963 novel by John Fowles. Hal Erickson at AllMovie notes: "Fowles' original story was written in the form of a dual diary, one kept by a kidnapper, the other by his victim. The film is told almost exclusively from the point of view of the former, a reclusive British bank clerk named Freddy Clegg (Terence Stamp). A neurotic recluse whose only pleasure is butterfly collecting, Clegg wins $200,000 in the British Football Pool. He purchases a huge country estate, fixes up its cellar with all the comforts of home, then kidnaps Miranda (Samantha Eggar), an art student whom he has worshipped from afar. The demented Clegg doesn't want ransom, nor does he want to rape the girl—he simply wants to 'collect' her." Nominated for three Academy Awards, and winner of Best Actor and Best Actress awards at The Cannes Film Festival.
