Hi all,

I see that The Boston Strangler is on AMC very early tomorrow morning. Not a bad although necessarily too accurate film. I saw it first run at the theater and it was literally SRO for the evening first weekend presentations.

hi stan,
oh right, never heard that abbreviation before....strangely enough i only finished the book monday(read it before years ago) it didnt seem so convincing this time around though. not entirely convinced of his guilt (de salvo) after watching a documentary recently....seems we had corruption in the police force even then
regards

Hi dougie,

I certainly have my doubts about him. Actually, I didn't ever read the original book. I do have Susan Kelly's book about the case and she doesn't really think he was guy.

Way back, I remember when the murders were in the news. It must have been something like the frenzy with JtR.

Not a bad movie - and you (kinda) get to see Elizabeth Baur.

You're welcome JM.

AMC is running The Boston Strangler again very early tomorrow morning as well as not quite so early Tuesday. It looks like they have it in hot rotation.

I like it, but it's a bit nondescript - it fails to provide real context or explain itself, like Dogs of War, although not the same type of movie, but it still makes my point.
