THE BOSTON STRANGLER Continued from Page 5 frames, within the one wide-screen picture is going on at the same time.” For example, one frame will show a woman locking her door, the second frame will have a detective talking to a suspect, the third will show police bringing in suspects to a police station, the fourth frame will have DeSalvo driving and trying to find a parking place where he can look up an intended victim, and a fifth will show Bottomly checking over records of known criminals in his “Stranger Bureau” office. To aid the audience in focusing atten¬ tion on the most important action, sound will be utilized in one frame only. The audience, aware of the entire screen, concentrates its attention on the frame with sound. Fleischer predicts audiences will enjoy the multi-screen process. “They’ll be fascinated,” he says, “they are being allowed to see everything taking CAPTURE—Tony Curtis, who stars as the self-confessed strangler Albert DeSalvo, is caught by policeman Bill Couch, with an assist by George Fisher, left, in 20th Century-fox's "The Boston Strangler." place at one time and it will be an electrifying innovation to them,” he con¬ tinued. The new technique has been a chal¬ lenge to Fleischer and the Fox tech- nicions because it required dozens of camera angles not normally needed. In several instances, five cameras were used at one time to get the proper footage. There were 14 cameras altogether, Fleischer pointed out, during production. While multi-image techniques are not new, the unique use Fleischer makes of them is. If the audience reaction is as good as Fleischer thinks, “The Boston Strangler” will be a new milestone for Hollywood. It is also a further proof that the film capitol is not afraid to tackle different approaches to the art of movie making. Even on film, Albert DeSalvo manages to remain a unique and strange criminal, one that Boston will not forget in a long time. Curtis was captured after long street chase. The film, directed by Richard Fleischer with Robert Fryer producing, stars Curtis, Henry Fonda and George Kennedy.
