Synopsis

The sordid true tale of a Tufts University professor who becomes obsessed with a prostitute and is driven to murder, as recounted in Russell M. Glitman's book, is enacted by Richard Crenna, at the head of a lengthy Canadian cast. Tufts officials doubtless were unnerved to discover that in this rather exploitative film their institution somehow got moved from suburban Medford, Mass., to downtown Boston, smack in the middle of the infamous and gaudy Combat Zone, the city's red-light district. (Perhaps to avoid any further unwanted publicity, the university chose not to sue the producers for what could be called "defamation of character.")
