The wife of a doctor (Jean Sorel) is murdered. He had a mistress a long ago, since his wife (Marisa Mell) always begged herself out of engagements because she is a asthmatic. On the other hand, she enjoyed a part time job as a stripper. Did the doctor kill her? Written by

This crime drama from the director who was to become the Italian goremeister about ten years later delivers an interesting story about relationships, jealousy and , of course, murder. In the end, the film even becomes a statement against the death penalty (the story takes place in the U.S.).
Although there are certain elements of giallo in here, I wouldn't call "Una sull'altra" a giallo; it's really a rather classic crime story concerning "indecent affairs" (on which some of the English titles refer).
All in all a good film, although the average Fulci-fan probably will be disappointed about the lack of any gore in this one.
