I didn't know that either until I saw that short TCM feature on The Red Shoes the other day. I suppose that in retrospect this explains why Scorsese took such an interest in preserving Powell's Peeping Tom...well, besides the fact that it's one hell of a movie.

I think Scorsese would have worked to preserve Peeping Tom anyway. It's the sort of unique, perverse creation he would treasure. However, it must have been a very special project for him.

I wonder what sorts of things Thelma and Michael talked about at the end of the day? The craft of moviemaking? Or maybe just gossip from the set?
