The Boston Strangler opens across the U.S. in 1968. The largely fictionalized account of the famous 1960s serial murder case features a Golden Globe-nominated performance by Tony Curtis, with support from Henry Fonda and George Kennedy. The film receives mixed reviews but eventually becomes a small hit.
