CGiii Comment

Are Jewish mothers really that bad? Because, this one, is a true horror.

Never has a more deserving victim been presented on screen - killing this nagging bitch (nasty word, but apt) in the first 15 minutes would have improved this film no end.

Steiger delivers his whole repertoire - Dorian Smith being his gay incarnation - but, alas, the comedy and drama do not sit well together making the whole filmed ludicrously unbalanced.

It could have been a classic - it most definitely is not.

The(ir) Blurb...

Christopher Gill is a psychotic killer who uses various disguises to trick and strangle his victims. Moe Brummel is a single and harassed New York City police detective who starts to get phone calls from the strangler and builds a strange alliance as a result. Kate Palmer is a swinging, hip tour guide who witnesses the strangler leaving her dead neighbor's apartment and sets her sights on the detective. Moe's live-in mother wishes her son would be a successful Jewish doctor like his big brother.
