The Boston Strangler
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.
- " An excellent movie, Curtis' best role ever as the tortured Albert DeSalvo. the documentary-style suits the film perfectly. wonderfully underplayed and suspenseful from beginning to end. " – Bob Bloom
- " Another fascinating true-crime drama by the underestimated Richard Fleischer. A cast against type Tony Curtis is excellent as killer Albert DeSalvo. " – Chuck O'Leary
- " The Boston Strangler requires a judgment not only on the quality of the film (very good), but also on its moral and ethical implications. " – Roger Ebert
