No Way to Treat a Lady (1968)

No Way to Treat a Lady (1968, USA) C-108m. *** D: Jack Smight. Starring Rod Steiger, George Segal, Lee Remick, Eileen Heckart, Murray Hamilton. Superb thriller, based on a novel by William Goldman (MARATHON MAN, DREAMCATCHER). Steiger excels in role of psychotic strangler, who terrifies the Manhattan neighborhood. Cop Segal is assigned to this case and a cat and mouse game begins. Remick is Segal's love interest and possible next victim. Well-directed, superbly paced, a first-rate novel adaptation (by John Gay) that effortlessly includes humoristic, romantic, suspenseful elements in the plot. Quite possibly also an influence on the Italian giallo.
