This true story based off of the Boston Strangler who killed 13 women in the 1960’s, includes reporter, Loretta McLaughlin who was the first person to connect all the murders to one person. McLaughlin and Jean Cole make history by being two women in the 1960’s that catch the most notorious serial killer. The role of Albert DeSalvo, who is the Boston Strangler, is played by David Dastmalchian.

The movie was filmed in numerous locations around Boston such as:

  • The exterior of McLaughlin’s house was at 47 Statler Rd., Belmont, Mass.
  • Winn Brook Elementary School that was used as the exterior for the police station was also in Belmont.
  • Most of the scenes were filmed in the South End of Boston.
  • The Longfellow Bridge in Boston was used in the fighting hippie scene.

Some interesting facts about the film is that shortly before it was supposed to be filmed, the real Albert DeSalvo escaped from the mental institution where he was imprisoned. He ended up being captured after 33 hours. Also, Tony Curtis actually broke his nose during the chase scene.
