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 »
Kupperman (played by Michael Dunn, a dwarf) repeatedly refers to himself as a "midget."

Steiger gives a bravura performance as a serial killer
Coming hot off the heels of his Oscar winning role in 1967's "In the Heat of the Night" Steiger gives an acting tour-de-force in this tale of a demented serial killer tormenting a police officer. Steiger pulls out all the plugs as he slips into the persona of a Catholic priest, German plumber, simpering hair stylist...and all with great flare and comic over tones. Segal and Remick provide the love interest in a rather kooky way, and it all makes for great fun, in a serial killer movie!..Gotta see it!
