CGiii Comment

The tragedy of this film is the revelation that Tony Curtis could actually act.

Fleischer is overly fond of split screen - and, he does actually use it very well...a little too often.

The film is in two parts - the first is a routine police investigation that drags any deviant in for questioning (mostly gay).

The second parts deals with Curtis - and is utterly riveting.

One notable feature is the lack of music - this is a slow, methodical building of a complex character -  expertly done.

Quite a remarkable film.

The(ir) Blurb...

Boston is being terrorized by a series of seemingly random murders of women. Based on the true story, the film follows the investigators path through several leads before introducing the Strangler as a character. It is seen almost exclusively from the point of view of the investigators who have very few clues to build a case upon.
