This giallo is terrific and one of my personal favourites.

Ray milland is a retired cop who is bored and starts interfering in the case of an unidentified girls mutilated body which found on a beach, the only clue to her identity being her distinctive yellow (i.e giallo) pyjamas.

The police have no leads as to who she is so take the unsual action of putting her body on display in the hope that a member of the public will identify her and hopefully bring the killer out of hiding...

This movie represents a change in the usual giallo stomping ground as it only features one murder so gorehounds may come away disappointed, and its shot (and set) in Australia, but all the suspense you could wish for is still there.

Ray Milland is great as the cop who is so close to catching the killer and our heroine is played by Dalila Di Lazzaro who Italian movie fans may recognise from Dario Argento's Phenomena, a talented and very beautiful actress, she looks somewhat like a seventies Uma Thurman.

Blue underground have done a great job restoring this baby, the picture looks awesome, and don't forget to check out the great trailer.

As for THAT theme song... someone needs to reissue it pronto!

Quite an atypical "Giallo", this, and none the worse for marking out its own particular territory. This is based on a true and still mysterious murder case in Australia in the 1930s; director and writer Flavio Mogherini's initial point of interest seeming to be that one of the suspects was an Italian immigrant. He sets his version of the story in the present(1977) but riffs on many of the macabre points of interest attached to the original case (which I won't spoil for you, but are outlined in a good 30 minute extra feature attached to Blue Underground's DVD; suffice it to say that the crazier any particular scene in the movie is, the more likely it is to be "true"!).

Ray Milland (a few years after "The Thing With Two Heads" and a few years before "The Attic"; in other words, midway through his years of asking his agent "Where the hell am I this week, why couldn't you get me a guest role on Columbo?") plays a semi-retired detective who gets the plot going. His offhand performance actually works really well here, grounding the bizarre nature of the puzzle he tries to solve in something quite real. But the revelation of the piece is Dalila Di Lazzaro, playing both the film's object of mystery and the object of desire for seemingly every male she encounters therein. The film plays games with linear narrative which might confuse at first (well, it's SUPPOSED to be a mystery)but the cumulative effect is quite stunning, placing the girl in the yellow pyjamas at the centre of a puzzle that yields up its secrets even as her fate closes in around her. There are moments where she seems to acknowledge- even to foresee- this fate, and it's here that Dalila Di Lazzaro's performance turns this five-star movie into a six.

Not really a giallo, more a murder mystery that gets hijacked on the way! There are two major threads to the film that should interweave in a clever and balanced manner. The problem is that after about 50 mins the director seems to forget that he is weaving a tale that has two different time frames and becomes obsessed with Dalila di Lazzaro! I can't blame him - she is gorgeous!! We get Dalila weeping beautifully near a stunning Sydney Harbour backdrop, Dalila looking pouty on a bed in a room bathed in neon lights etc...etc... Ray Milland bows out after about an hour and leaves most of the rest of the film to the Dalila photoshoot. So, I love the film for its grouchy and amusing Ray Milland moments, for the gorgeous fashion shoot filming of the lovely Dalila and for the crisp clean transfer by Blue Underground. It looks stunning in places. However, I do think that the final product was a missed opportunity and ended up being an exercise in style over substance!
