In this, the 30th instalment of the Movie Matters Podcast, co-hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie return to a subject close to both their hearts -- that most distinctive of moments, the Italian giallo. Two radically different examples of the genre are up for consideration, both from 1972 -- Sergio Martino's giallo/occult hybrid ALL THE COLOURS OF THE DARK, starring the golden couple of Edwige Fenech and George Hilton, and Aldo Lado's sombre, Venetian thriller WHO SAW HER DIE?, starring George Lazenby and Anita Strindberg. In addition to covering the aforementioned two films in depth, we also hear listener Leonard Jacobs's thoughts on ALL THE COLOURS OF THE DARK, and catch up on some of our recent viewing and future plans for the podcast.
The music in this episode is sampled from THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS. WARDH by Nora Orlandi, THE CASE OF THE SCORPION'S TAIL and ALL THE COLOURS OF THE DARK by Bruno Nicolai, and WHO SAW HER DIE? and SHORT NIGHT OF THE GLASS DOLLS by Ennio Morricone.
