Top 10 Films Set-In-London-During-The-1960s

Follow @distractedfilm

My admiration for the history of British cinema only grows, discovering beautiful new titles  during the making of this list. Thank-you, as always, to all contributors.

Notable exclusions this time included; Preminger’s Bunny Lake Is Missing and Victim with Dirk Bogarde. Some others fell foul of the duplication rule, namely; Antonioni’s Blow Up and Polanski’s Repulsion.

In no particular order then.

Peeping Tom (Michael Powell, 1960). Suggested by @PaulVonMitchell.Der Psychothriller "Peeping Tom" hatte 1960 Premiere - eine erschütternde Erfahrung für den Hauptdarsteller Karlheinz Böhm. Das Publikum und die Kritiker hassten den Film. Böhm und Regisseur Michael Powell waren jedoch überzeugt von dem Stoff. Sie sollten recht behalten. Während sich wohl niemand heute an die vernichtenden Zeitungskritiken erinnert, ist "Peeping Tom" einer der wichtigsten Filme des 20. Jahrhunderts und der Lieblingsfilm von Starregisseur Martin Scorsese.7f1474d4e05863e8db4c6e2f1567f646
