Follow Me! is a 1972 drama film directed by Sir Carol Reed, starring Mia Farrow and Topol. Adapted by Peter Shaffer from his own play (The Public Eye). The picture marks Carol Reed's last completed film.

The film was released in the United States under its original stage title The Public Eye.

The score was composed by John Barry and the film was edited by Anne V. Coates.


Set in London, it is the story of a wealthy businessman (Michael Jayston), who suspects that his wife (Farrow) is having an affair. He hires a private detective (Topol) to follow her. She becomes aware that she is being followed, and the detective realises that she has found out. However rather than abandoning the case, the detective begins an elaborate game of cat and mouse with the complicity of the wife.



Mia Farrow won the best actress award and Topol won the best actor award at the San Sebastian International Film Festival.
