A true story comes to kaleidoscopic life in a film that vividly captures the atmosphere of terror that pervaded Boston in the 1960s and the desperate attempts by the police to catch an elusive killer. Tony Curtis shatters his iconic pretty-boy image to give a brilliant performance as mentally disturbed handyman Albert DeSalvo, and Henry Fonda is his match as the cool and brainy police investigator. Fleischer's use of split screen to ratchet up the suspense has never been equalled.
