Format: DVD
'The Girl Who Knew Too Much' is Mario Bava's last black & white film and one of the first in the 'giallo' genre although you might call it film noir or pulp as the word 'giallo' means yellow in Italian which was the colour of most pulp fiction novels in the olden days, I would love to claim that this nugget was something I've known all along but I learnt it in John Saxon interview on the special features.
This is a quality film, particularly the lighting and the inventive camerawork, there are even some more light hearted moments and dashes of comedy amongst the murder and treachery, although don't expect it to scare your socks off as it's only rated a 12.
There's no mention of it on the box or in the credits but it does owe a certain amount to Agatha Christie's 'The ABC Murders', a Poirot novel where the killer works his way through the alphabet murdering people such as Alice Asher, Betty Barnard, Carmichael Clarke, etc. and taunting Poirot as he goes along although at one point, the Leticia Roman character reels off a few murder mystery writers and who should Bava slip in but Agatha Christie.

Format: DVD
Bava pays explicit homage to Hitchcock in this fun, mostly light
hearted mystery.

An American girl vacationing in Rome witnesses what might be a
murder (or is it her overactive imagination, spurred on by her love
of cheap mystery novels?). And before you know it, she's the
possible target of a serial killer.

The black and white photography is beautiful, but Bava tones his
style down just a bit, and it works; the photography compliments
the story, without swamping it,.

There are weak spots, like an annoying voice over that insists on
explaining what the images are making very clear by themselves,
and performances that are uneven (especially in supporting roles).
But, the bottom line is, if it wasn't in Italian, one could even believe
this was a Hitchcock film, which is a pretty high compliment...

I've only watched the AIP version Evil Eye from the Blu-ray plus the extras. When The Girl Who Knew too Much was released on DVD in the USA I was disappointed that the two things I remembered from the film--the opening sequence inside the airplane gliding past passengers as we hear their thoughts (an idea that might have inspired film buff Wim Wenders in Wings of Desire) and a scene where a painting in the heroine's room changes expression when she isn't looking were both missing from the original Italian language film. It was nice to watch the AIP version I remembered seeing as a kid again.

Evil Eye isn't really one of Mario Bava's better films--although in the extras directors Luigi Cozi and Richard Stanley and authors Alan Jones and Mikel Koven make a convincing case for its value alongside other better-known Bava films like Black Sunday and Kill Baby Kill. One of the problems with Evil Eye is that it has six credited screenwriters and feels like it--the tone shifts from silly comedy to romantic comedy to thriller to murder mystery a bit awkwardly, giving the impression that either Bava wanted to include a little bit of everything or that he couldn't decide what kind of movie he actually wanted to make.

Leticia Roman is charming as the American tourist who loves murder mysteries and enjoys having the chance to solve a real-life one when police don't believe that she has seen a murder--Dario Argento would take the witness to murder who becomes an amateur detective idea and run with it in his early giallos like Bird With the Crystal Plummage and Deep Red. I'm not really crazy about John Saxon in this--he always struck me as being a character actor rather than a lead and isn't really all that effective in his comic or romantic scenes.

Blu ray has both versions,the 2 DVDs have one on each.The audio commentary is one already heard on Bava boxset vol.1.Unusually though I now prefer the U.S.version of the film,unlike other botched up for double bills,this is a slightly longer cut,better picture quality and Les Baxters score is better(apart from end titles music) The different ending sets up the idea that they are to be a crime solving duo as opposed to the original was it all a drug induced dream.So thank you once again ARROW for a top release.

I liked the movie a lot. Being reviewd as the very first giallo, this movie sets the tone for this interesting and forgotten genre. Leticia Roman is beautiful and is the hightlight of the picture.
The film has a surprising end. The Italian "Psycho".
