"The Silkworm" (1974) is a film for Nadja Tiller fans. She frequently turns up in European films but usually in support but in this one she has the starring role. George Hilton is basically a red herring like Janet Leigh was in "Psycho" in that he is used in small role but given star billing. And Guy Madison went totally unnoticed by me. The latest pretty face was a character of a Greek boy going by the name of "Costas" and played by Carlos de Castro. Nothing really exceptional. Directed by Mario Seoui and written by Mino Roli with music by Mario Bertolazzi with interesting costuming by E. Romana Cofano. This mystery about a woman who re-grows her fortune through precarious means held my attention and curiosity, but there is nothing exceptional about it except the writing and plotting that pulls it off. The copy I saw had bad subtitling. Perhaps I rated it a little high, as it is nice when everyone has their day.
