Storyline

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. Written by alfiehitchie

Trivia

The morning after the first murder, Steiger checks the newspapers for coverage. The back page of the New York Daily News reveals that the Philadelphia Phillies edged the New York Mets 6 to 5 and that the Kansas City Athletics shut out the New York Yankees 2 to 0. The edition of the paper Steiger is reading is therefore from Thursday, June 29, 1967. See more »

Top film!
7 December 1998 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

There have been many serial killer films over the years but this was one of the earliest and one of the best. It manages to be witty, suspenseful, funny and shocking in separate portions. Rod Steiger is very good in a role made for him but George Segal takes the acting honours because it's a much harder role and he does it so well. Lee Remick is fine also.

The best scene is the opening pre-credit sequence. It may look rather mundane at first but.....
