A disturbing metaphor for the culture clashes of the 1960s, "The Collector" (1965) is as eerily meticulous as its protagonist. The film stars Terrance Stamp as an obsessive, withdrawn young man, whose only hobby is collecting and cataloging butterflies. After winning a sweepstakes, he purchases a remote country house and collects a new kind of specimen: a young, beautiful art student, played by Samantha Eggar, whom he kidnaps. With his usual precision he tries to make her fall in love with him, with tragic results.

    Comments about this product:

    Having always viewed this movie in bits and pieces, whenever TCM included it in its programming, I was terribly fascinated by the plot, and the characters. Thus, knowing the works of director William Wyler, I was terribly curious. I had never seen the movie from beginning to end. Therefore, I wish to own the movie, and have the opportunity to watch it again and again in order to fully understand all of the hidden meanings in each and every scene. I purchased two copies, and gave the other to a friend so that we may then discuss it in detail with one another. Since I had shared with her the story, she had become rather curious as well. She is not a classic movie fan. Yet, I told her that once she sees this movie, she just might become a classic movie fan. I must say that this is a beautifully made movie. After having finally seen it from beginning to end, without any interruptions, I now consider this movie to be a tragic love story as well a mystery and a thriller. A love story between two individuals of different upbringing and social class. There is so much that one can say about this movie. The colors are fascinating: Much like the vivid colors of the butterflies. The acting is captivating. The characters are deep and intense. The script well written and adapted. The characters not only evoke a love/hate relationship between one another, they are also able to transfer those feelings to the viewer. The viewer is captured and held hostage in their world, hoping that this will end well...somehow...this time. It is a mesmerizing movie. One that I will enjoy watching again and again: Simply because each time I view it, I notice or hear or understand some tiny clue which I had missed before. A clue which will help me unravel the thinking, and the mind sets of the characters. It is a sad movie, yet it makes the viewer realize how little we understand about each other as human beings in an hurting world.
