The Big Peep

It's a damnably large private eye
On the lam it's more lard-ass than spry
Far too clumsy and slow,
As a gumshoe so-so...
When a cam'ra's the star, one asks why?

Audrey Totter and director and star Robert Montgomery, in his failed experiment in subjective camera, Lady in the Lake (1947). The camera literally takes Montgomery's point of view for the entire film.
