Storyline

Two seemingly separate stories in New South Wales: a burned, murdered body of a young woman is found on the beach, and a retired inspector makes inquiries; also, Linda, a waitress and ferry attendant, has several lovers and marries one, but continues seeing the others. The police have a suspect in the murder, but the retired inspector is convinced they're wrong; he continues a methodical investigation. Linda and her husband separate, and there are complications. Will the stories cross or are they already twisted together? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Loosely based on a true-life murder mystery that gripped Australia in 1934, Flavio Mogherini's "The Pyjama Girl Case" (1977) is a deliberately paced crime thriller that ultimately leaves the viewer with a distinct feeling of sadness. In it, Golden Age great Ray Milland plays Insp. Thompson, a retired homicide detective living in Sydney who is coaxed back into the game when the body of a young woman--shot, battered and burnt beyond recognition--is found in a wrecked car on a beach. Using old-fashioned legwork and bulldog determination, this raincoated Aussie Columbo gets to work, as the film treats us to a concurrent, seemingly unrelated side story: the plight of a young Dutch woman named Glenda (Dalila Di Lazzaro, who resembles a cuter variation of Uma Thurman) and her attempts to juggle her Italian immigrant husband, her German lover, and her married-doctor boyfriend. How these two apparently discrete story lines come together is one of the film's surprises, along with the truly startling death of one of the film's principal characters roughly 2/3 of the way in. The picture's other saving grace, I suppose, is Milland, who is always a joy to watch, even here at age 72 and in the twilight of a glorious career. The film also provides us with a gorgeous travelogue look at Sydney, beyond the usual Opera House shots, so yes, the picture does look great. Unfortunately, it is also occasionally dull and plodding, has been terribly dubbed, and comes with a funky musical score by Riz Ortolani that many may find inappropriate (it grows on one, though). Still, Italian crime pictures shot in Sydney and starring Ray Milland are not exactly common, so this sui generis film may just fit the bill one evening for the discriminating viewer. And oh...I agree with many others that the 30-minute extra on this Blue Underground DVD, with author Richard Evans detailing the actual 1934 crime, is, in a way, more interesting than the film itself. Remake, anyone?
