The Collector (1965)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

The Collector (1965) Freddie is an inept bank clerk with no future. His only hobby is collecting butterflies, which gives him a feeling of power and control that is otherwise totally missing from his life. He comes into a large sum of money, and buys himself a country house. Still unable to make himself at ease socially, he starts to plan on acquiring a girl friend - in the same manner as he collects butterflies. He prepares the cellar of the house to be a collecting jar, and stalks his victim over several days.

More Movie Taglines:
  • Almost a love story
  • You won't dare open your mouth, but you'll be screaming for her to escape!
Movie Quote(s):
  • Miranda Grey: I've stayed the four weeks. Freddie Clegg: I just have to have you here a little longer. Miranda Grey: Why? What more can I do? What more can you want? Freddie Clegg: You know what I want... it's what I've always wanted. You could fall in love with me if you tried. I've done everything I could to make it easy. You just won't try!
  • Freddie Clegg: Don't worry. I'll respect your every privacy.
  • Freddie Clegg: What's got four ears and eight legs? Miranda Grey: What? Freddie Clegg: Two dogs.
  • Freddie Clegg: There'd be a blooming lot more of this sort of thing, if more people had the time and the money.
Movie Trivia:
  • Kenneth More was originally cast as Samantha Eggar's secret lover but all of his scenes were cut from the final print.
  • Natalie Wood turned down the role of Miranda Grey.
  • When Freddie is stalking Miranda she walks by a cinema that shows that Ben-Hur is playing. Director William Wyler also directed Ben-Hur.
  • Sarah Miles and Julie Christie were considered for the part of Miranda.
  • For the sequence in which Freddie drags Miranda through the rain, William Wyler had prop men throw buckets of water over Samantha Eggar without warning between takes. Eggar later spoke of how Wyler succeeded in making her feel "defenseless," hence deepening her performance.
