Facts about

Michael Powell:  Peeping Tom's father, seen in an old home movie he shows the girl.
Early choices for the role of Mark included Dirk Bogarde and Laurence Harvey.
The film was heavily cut by the BBFC before release and consequently many scenes still have a ragged feel to them. The murders of Vivian and Dora were toned down, shots of nudity were deleted (including photos of nude girls in the album), the suicide of the killer was shortened, and scenes featuring the spike were also edited. Some dialogue was also cut (which explains the abrupt ending to the conversation between the policemen in the car). Although some cuts were restored in later video and DVD releases much of the edited footage is now considered lost forever.
