Who Killed Mary What's 'Er Name? ★★ Death of a Hooker 1971 (PG)

A diabetic ex-fighter tracks a prostitute's killer through Greenwich Village. Illogical, incredible and disjointed attempt at comedy/mystery. Odd, unsatisfying ending, with the boxer going into a coma. Good supporting cast. 90m/C VHS . Red Buttons, Sylvia Miles, Conrad Bain, Ron Carey, David Doyle, Sam Waterston; D: Ernest Pintoff.
