deserves far greater plaudits, and its relative obscurity is wholly undeserved.
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Somewhat of a Giallo maestro, Massimo 'What Have They Done To Solange' Dallamano directs this this early entry in the gialli cycle (1968) and it proves to not only be a worthy effort, but a dashed entertaining thriller to boot. While this does contain the ultimate Giallo motif of the shiny, black gloved killer, the film wisely eschews the giddy silliness of the genre and proposes a more sombre examination of sexual infidelity, and the pursuant jealousies. If anything 'A Black Veil for Lisa' follows a more stolid euro crime narrative; one where a shadowy hit-man working for a vicious gang of drug dealers is happily bumping off all those who cross its nefarious path; and when this murderous trail comes to the attention of Inspector Franz Bulon (John Mills) his dogged investigations ultimately proposes a logical but devastating solution to his marital frustrations. John Mills is truly excellent as the paranoid cuckold inspector; Robert Hoffman is suitably suave and charming as the libidinous killer and Luciana Paluzzi makes for buxom eye candy; while she does little more than pout around in a series of skimpy outfits, this auburn-haired temptress does this with great elan! Dallamano directs this engaging Giallo with real verve, and the taut narrative uncoils its way to a genuinely thrilling conclusion. 'A Black Veil for Lisa' deserves far greater plaudits, and its relative obscurity is wholly undeserved.
