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 Conrad Bain, Sylvia Miles, 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.[1]

The film was rated PG despite the fact that it dealt with topics including prostitution and murder.

Since its original theatrical release, the film was only released on VHS (distributed by Video Gems in 1982), and is now out-of-print.
