The original giallo
19 January 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Nora Davis (Letícia Román) is an American tourist in Rome who witnesses the brutal murder of a woman on her first night in the city, however circumstances prevail that no body is found and the police and pretty much every one else believe she is a little crazy, except that is for a young Dr. Marcello Bassi (John Saxon)that she has befriended who plays along and helps her investigate. Nora's investigations brings up three earlier killings in the same place on the Spanish Steps in Rome,that at the time were called the Alphabet Murders, due to the killer's preponderance for killing women that had the respective letter in their surname,but the killer was caught and imprisoned for life,so who is it doing the killings?soon Nora realizes that the letter "D" is next on the killers list and that she is to be his next victim.

Well, I've searched high and low for this granddaddy of the Gialli Genre for over two years now and finally got myself a copy,and was it worth it?….Its Mario Bava of course it was…..Filmed in stunning black & white the film boasts some fine performances from the leads, it is also regarded as the film that started the ball rolling for the giallo on film.The Girl who knew too much also gives a very firm nod to the work of Hitchcock whose "Man who knew too much" the title is borrowed from.The film is full of suspense with some very nice scenes and keeps you guessing until the end,as all fine Gialli should…..it is quite low on the bloodletting though, a trait the Giallo would ignore more and more as it entered the 1970's, but this is still an excellent film and well worth checking out….if you can find a copy that doesn't mean breaking the bank. 8/10
