Freddie Clegg (Terence Stamp) is an inept bank clerk with no future. His only hobby is collecting butterflies, which gives him a feeling of power and control that is otherwise totally missing from his life. He comes into a large sum of money, and buys himself a country house. Still unable to make himself at ease socially, he decides to expand to collecting human specimens. That's where art student Miranda Grey (Samantha Eggar) comes in. He prepares the cellar of the house to be a collecting jar and stalks his victim over several days. The great french composer Maurice Jarre focuses on one main childish and innocent topic, using instruments such as the harpsichord, organ, piano, flutes, also some jazz and a small orchestra in order to give a very particular musical universe of his twisted and psychopathic protagonist. His music work on The Collector adds an eerie quality indicative of the wolf in sheep’s clothing aspect found in Terence Stamp’s Freddie Clegg. In this video we can listen “The bargain” and “Main Theme”.
