I was surprised to read on IMDB that her role in the Michael Powell horror film Peeping Tom was only her second role as a professional actress.  If you watch the movie, she provides the film with an emotional core.  Her acting is quite remarkable in it; she ably shows that she can love a man who is hopelessly neurotic and even dangerous.  Her performance is very beautiful.  I haven’t seen that many other films with her, but I believe I’ll have to.  It’s like we were just getting to know her.

She joins a list of classic film stars who have died this year, including Elizabeth Tayloy and Farley Granger.Anna Massey in Peeping Tom.
