The real story of the Mr. Goodbar Murder. Rosann Quinn. John Wayne Wilson. There is so much more to the story. The murder was the basis for the movie and book Looking for Mr. Goodbar. Also for the book Closing Time. The real story is very different from the movie. A Single Teacher in 1973 New York living on her own. Her story was told as a cautionary tale. He was a drifter. There is so much more to both of their stories.
