Looking for Mr. Goodbar is a 1975 novel by Judith Rossner, and a 1977 film starring Diane Keaton, Tuesday Weld, and Richard Gere. Rossner based the novel on the events surrounding the brutal murder of Roseann Quinn, a 28-year-old New York City schoolteacher in 1973. The film was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress and Cinematography Academy Awards. It also was nominated for the Best Actress Golden Globe; and received a Writers Guild of America Award nomination for Best Drama Adapted from Another Medium.

The Plot

A prologue of the confession of the murder of Theresa Dunn, the novel's protagonist. Theresa, a schoolteacher, often visits bars late at night when she is unable to sleep, picking up men and taking them back to her studio apartment. After copulating with them, she has them leave; never letting a man spend an entire night with her. The man who kills her does so after being told to leave, and becomes so infuriated that he hits her over the head with a lamp, smothers her with a pillow, and stabs her repeatedly. He views himself as being her victim, though.
