Actors: Tony Curtis, Henry Fonda
|Plot Summary of The Boston Strangler|
Tony Curtis is "The Boston Strangler," and for his convincing portrayal he won an Oscar nomination. This film is based upon the true story of a man accused--but never convicted--of brutal murders in the Boston area. Deduced as a man having multi-personalities (he was judged to be criminally insane and thus could not stand trial for the murders), Curtis enacts a convincing Strangler in a taut, expertly directed film.
