Plot Synopsis:

THE BOSTON STRANGLER chronicles the investigation of the famous real-life murder case that haunted the citizens of Boston. Using an unusual split-screen technique, the film follows two detectives as they track the man who raped and killed thirteen women in the early 1960s.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: Octoder 16, 1968.
  • Filmed in Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
  • Robert Fryer, the producer of THE BOSTON STRANGLER, was a good friend of Terence Rattigan, the respected English playwright whose best known works are THE WINSLOW BOY, THE DEEP BLUE SEA, and THE BROWNING VERSION. Fryer asked Rattigan to write the script of THE BOSTON STRANGLER. Director Richard Fleischer says that when he and Fryer received Rattigan's first 40 pages they "were appalled...[it] bore little relationship to the book. Worse still, and most puzzling, it was written as a comedy." Rattigan was removed from the picture, and replaced by Edward Anhalt.

    John S. Bottomly (played by Henry Fonda) and Philip Di Natale (played by George Kennedy) were technical advisers on THE BOSTON STRANGLER.
