Who Killed Mary What's 'Er Name? (also known as Death of a Hooker) is a 1971 film starring comedian and actor Red Buttons and featuring Sylvia Miles, Conrad Bain, Alice Playten and Sam Waterston. Ernest Pintoff was the director, and Gary McFarland wrote the soundtrack music.
The plot centers around the murder of a prostitute in a crime-ridden low-income city neighborhood. Dismayed by the general indifference the police and neighbors show toward the murder, a resident who knew the prostitute sets out to do his own investigation of the case.
Since its original theatrical release, the film was only released on VHS (distributed by Video Gems in 1982), and is now out of print.
