The Student from Berkley
13 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

****SPOILERS**** Real life lady-killer in the romance department Robert Redford plays on the run lady-killer and Berkley University drop-out Arthur Honniger who's a honey of a guy in getting women to let him in their houses and ends up assault and raping them. It's when Arthur tries to do the same to housewife Noguchi Gladstone, Tsuruko Koboyashi, things go terribly wrong as she drops dead of a heat attack before he can get the job, rape her, done. It's then when the Metro Squad headed by Let. Price Adams, Leslie Nielsen, springs into action.

As it turned out one of "Pretty Boy" Honniger's victims Phyllis Eberhardt, Anne Francis, can not only identify him but is also a professional artist who can draw his picture for the police to use in wanted posters plastered all over the state. With Honniger realizing that Phyllis can finger him he makes an attempt to pay her a visit for a second time and not be the nice guy, by just raping her, that he was before! This time around he's gonna shut her up for good and put her six feet under!

****SPOILERS*** It's Phyills' estranged husband Frank, Martin Balsam, who at first felt that she asked for it, in her being raped, that soon saw the error of his way and later corrected it. That's when Honniger held her hostage Frank put his life on the line by offering himself up as his victim in order to save her life. Honniger who became unhinged in what he was seeing, a husband willing to change place with his "cheating" wife, lost control giving Metro Squad sharp shooter Sgt. Vince Cavelli, John Beradino, all the time he needed to get a shot in putting Honniger away for good!

P.S As we soon found out from Honniger himself, before he got blasted, that his actions were the result of his big sister, who brought him up from childhood, deserting him when he needed her most. That was for some dirty beatnik type artist who sweet talked her into taking off with him for far off New York's Greenwich Village. That had Honniger flip out and take out his anger on women whom he targeted who reminded him of his big sister since she was too far away for him to get to her!
