Stalker crime thriller with Sal Mineo as a disturbed busboy fixating on nightclub hostess Juliet Prowse. Set in mid 1960s Manhattan, nightclub worker Nora (Prowse) starts to receive obscene phone calls. Initially deciding to dismiss them, Nora's concerns grow when she meets sex-crime obsessed police lieutenant Bill Madden (Jan Murray), who has a personal axe to grind, as his wife was assaulted and murdered by a stalker. As the calls become more personal, including details of events inside her own flat, Nora tries to carry on her normal life, seeking help from her boss Marian (Elaine Stritch). But when Marian is murdered outside Nora's flat wearing her coat, Nora finally realises she needs protection. As Madden begins to put to put the pieces together, it becomes a race against time to trap the stalker before he adds Nora to his list of victims.

This movie is one of those movies that was once "banned in the UK" by our most sesible censors but suddenly after 40 years it's been released on dvd here with a 15cert, so I guess the British public is at last deemed fit to view. Story concerns Juliet Prowse looking stunning as a nightclub hostess in New York who is being stalked by an obsessive-Sal Mineo is a weirdo who also looks stunning and Elaine Strich runs the nightclub and even she looks pretty good! The movie is worth viewing just for those "hip" 60s dance moves on the dancefloor-"far out man!"

For a pulp sleaze thriller Who Killed Teddy Bear is really very good. You can feel a slight exploitation in some aspects, but the three leads are outstanding and the photography is constantly eye-catching. The story revolves around a phone sex pest played by Sal Mineo, who becomes obsessed with Juliet Prowse who spins the discs at a nightclub he also works at. He also looks after a mentally handicapped sister, which seems to be connected to his strange psychological state, as he is devoted but also to some extent responsible for what happened to her. The key factors are the images, which are so thick with atmosphere you could cut them with a knife, and the faces, which also translate into wonderful images. Juliet Prowse has a very attractive vivaciousness and makes an excellent foil to Elaine Stritch as the nightclub manager, while Sal Mineo has a very innocent face - ideal for this part because he seems too innocent to be capable of anything criminal - and very nice lips that look as though they're made for kissing, although no one seems to be doing so in this film. He also wears his trousers very tight ... His persona is not unlike that of Anthony Perkins in Psycho, which it must be influenced by, but I actually prefer it, both for the story and visual style. The sense of New York in the sixties is very well caught, and there are many interior features that give pleasure - it really is a film of great visual flair, and the dancing is quite thrilling, as others have said - worth the price of the DVD in itself!

This is a quite strange movie - very very dated by the acting, fashion style and dialogue, but it holds your attention. However, there is a fantastic dance scene with Juliet Prowse and Sal Mineo in which the background music is just fabulous. I have tried hunting on every possible internet site and cannot find who sings the song or the name of the song (it is NOT the title song "Who Killed Teddy Bear". I suspect the name of the song could be Ït Should Have Been Me as that is repeated a lot in the song. Does anyone know who sings it????

A great performance by the late greats Sal Mineo and Juliet Prowse. Not sure why it was banned by the UK censors. Sexual threads all throughout this film...with a little psychosis!

I think the dance scene with Juliet Prowse is incredibly seductive.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Due to a traumatic experience in his past, a young man (Sal Mineo) is sexually maladjusted and finds himself both attracted to yet repulsed by female sexuality. He becomes obsessed with the disc jockey (Juliet Prowse) at the disco where he works and begins a series of obscene phone calls to her. The detective (Jan Murray) assigned to the case has his own issues. His wife was raped, mutilated and murdered by a sexual psychopath and his obsession with the psyche of sexual perverts makes him almost a brother under the skin. This low budget B&W exploitation movie sounds more interesting than it is. It's really an opportunity to exploit the subject with plentiful shots of Juliet Prowse and Sal Mineo in their underwear and dashes of lesbianism, sexy 19 year olds with the minds of 10 year old children, murder and rape. Indeed, this may be the first American film to show a full on rape scene without cutting away. The film seems more intent on titillation than insightful psychological insights. It also shares the typical 60s mentality toward homosexuality, when Elaine Stritch's lipstick lesbian is murdered, it's barely mentioned in passing despite her being a major character. Shot on the cuff and on location, the film is a marvelous look at New York City circa 1965. Directed by Joseph Cates (father of Phoebe). With Daniel J. Travanti and Bruce Glover.

The Network DVD is a full frame transfer and for the most part is a decent transfer but there are occasional scratches and a couple of the scenes are in extremely soft focus.
