Who Saw Her Die?

Starring one-time James Bond actor, George Lazenby, Who Saw Her Die? chronicles the anguish of sculptor Franco and his estranged wife Elizabeth as they unravel the secrets surrounding the death of their daughter. They uncover a shadowy world of old timey withcraft, twisted Catholicism and a host of bizarre characters. Who Saw Her Die? has a depth of emotion and characterization not generally seen in most gialli. The choice of Venice as a location is beautiful and creates a damp and claustrophobic atmosphere. Add a most unnerving using a children's choir from the master, Ennio Morricone, and you have one of the best non-Argento gialli ever made. Highly recommended. Now get the soundtrack.

The theme tune to the British childrens TV cartoon RHUBARB contains one of the best riffs of all time.

I love the ending to this movie, when the church is absolved of any guilt by the friendly news reporter. Aldo Lado, the director also did "The Night Train Murders", which makes "Last House on the Left" look like a kids movie. Thanks for putting this up!
