“This Italian fellow is starting to make me nervous!”
Alfred Hitchcock, after seeing Dario Argento’s ‘The Bird With the Crystal Plumage’
Sometimes called the Italian Hitchcock, Dario Argento’s 1970 debut feature became a box office smash in his home country thanks to a chic treatment of violence, sexual provocation, & no shortage of atmosphere & suspense. (Hitch would even borrow some of these Italian “giallo” trends for his next film, “Frenzy” in 1972.)
Shot in Rome during the summer of ’69, the fashions of the day ore indeed on show, as an American writer (Tony Musante) is witness to a crime which may hinder his pending return & that of his model girlfriend (Suzy Kendall) to the USA.
