In modern-day London, a sex criminal known as the Necktie Murderer has the police on alert, and in typical Hitchcok fashion, the trail is leading to an innocent man, who must know now elude the law and prove his innocence by finding the real murderer.
A thriller with great humour. This film has scenes of disgusting violence (rape/murder) done in disturbingly personal horror. Then scenes of light gentle humour. The best is of the chief detective at home with his wife, who has prepared him inedible haut cuisine while he goes over the cases of the serial killer. Very dated in a good way. Covent Garden fruit and veg market pictured beautifully. 70's attitudes and 70's film production and acting. Today's target viewer will be in their 60's, a bit too dated for anyone younger.
