Psychotronic Movie of the Week: Who Killed Teddy Bear? (1965)




Who Killed Teddy Bear
1965
Magna, United States

Produced by Everett Rosenthal, Directed by Joseph Cates

Charles Beesley writes in The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film:

Really grimy obscene phone call chiller with a New York discotheque background, Busboy Sal Mineo, guardian to a brain-damaged sister, writhes in bed while club hostess/deejay Juliet Prowse worries on the other end of the line. Jan Murray of th vice squad tries to investigate and acts so creepy that Juliet thinks he's the maniac. With Frank Campanella, Margot Bennett, and Elaine Stritch as Juliet's lesbian boss, who tries to help in her own way. Title song and discotheque hits written by Al Kasha and Bob Gaudio (of the Four Seasons).
