Storyline

This story is based on facts taken from authenticated newspaper files. What truly motivated Ted Andrews is not clearly known although a childhood filled with depression, hate for his mother, and a lonely adult life seeded with migraine headaches was a possible start. Through the use of his telephone and a high powered telescope he terrorized his neighborhood. He peered into the private lives of people who never dreamed he was watching and what he saw only heightened his desire for perversion. Finally he became obsessed with one woman, a woman of dignity and station, of wealth and security. His plan - step by step was to degrade her, to bring her down to his level of existence, and to make her an animal. He convinces her that he will kill her ten year old son if she doesn't cooperate with him. As a result she agrees to perform for him before his telescope. He later forces her to meet him at a motel where he completes his act of degradation. The ending is as shocking as the opening. Written by pressbook synopsis

Outstanding Indie!
13 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw this movie in 1968, it was in one of those cavernous old-time movie houses on 42nd Street in NYC--an area known as "The Deuce." The beautiful black and white photography, the nudity, the violence and some outstanding performances made this an unforgettable experience. Seeing a movie like this on a real movie screen made all the difference in conveying its power and beauty, rather than watching this on a small TV screen. Virginia Gordon was a real real stand-out with her classy looks but sensual face. The story line, too, was dynamic and it's a tragedy that many of these "soft-core" independent films have been lumped together as "garbage." Just take a look at the fabulous "Scream of the Butterfly," that's become a cult classic because of its outstanding black and white photography, story, director and casting.
