Quotes

Bert's companion: You know what I think, Bert; Manchester United's got the best team in the First Division. Pity Bobby Charlton's not playing anymore though. The greatest moment of my life was in 1968 when I watched them beat Benfica, 4-1 in the European Cup.
Bert - lorry driver: Yeah, well, some people like to live on past glory, don't they?
Bert's companion: Past glory? What are you talking about? For the last thirty years they've been on the crest of a wave. They're a bloody sight better than Chelsea. They're just a bunch of cripples!

VERY underrated classic

Many people say this film disappointed them, but for me it's a great film, and i gave it 8 stars. I think it's a very interesting giallo/crime story with a classical chlice (mysterious black gloved killer). Film has a cast of great actors and actresses (Sweet little Gloria Guida, Leonard Mann, Citizen Kane's Joseph Cotten, Thunderball's Adolfo Celi, gorgeous Janet Agren and good old Alida Valli).

People say it has predictable ending, but it doesn't. It has good mystery and it really has a perfect plot, since the killer isn't caught at the end (because he has an accomplice). It's interesting, fun little classic with suspense and you're not sure who the killer is at the end at some point. I also like this film because the characters are British noblemen, and it has a lot of old fashion, fancy clothes. Better said, this is a very fancy giallo. The motive is just old fashioned money, nothing else. I would add three more candidates (2 chairman's friends and his wife). But still it's good even if it lacks in gore, nudity and J&B. Unfortunately, it's very underrated by many people. However it's a solid giallo for a classical giallo fan, and i recommend it to giallo fans but i think this isn't a good film for giallo starters (but it's still good).
