L'UCCELLO DALLE PIUME DI CRISTALLO - Dario Argento/Ennio Morricone - "Point Of Terror" (1970)

Howdy Y'all and welcome to The Saturday Night Special down here in The Dungeon!

Any regular readers of this here blog will know that I have given up some time ago on Giallo flicks, but that I have never given up on the talents of Dario Argento, and tonight's special feature illustrates precisely why!

There's no escaping knives and violence in Giallo films, in fact those are most likely the hands of the master himself,  Dario Argento! The music in "L'uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo" was composed by another Italian master in his field, the always classic Ennio (Good, Bad, and The Ugly) Morricone! 514 title credits to his name, and Maestro Morricone is still working it today! Freakin' Incredible!! The equally amazing Bruno Nicolai is the cat in charge of the conducting! That is an incomparable combination of talent!

Italian-American actor Tony Musante had his own TV series in 1973-74 called "Toma" where he played Detective David Toma for 23 episodes! He was a school teacher before becoming an actor!

Tony has the part of  Sam Dalmas, and Sam has just witnessed a grisly murder in an art gallery behind a glass wall that he is helpless to do anything about!

Just stare at it for a while!

The advances in computer technology today are so far beyond amazing!!!

Pretty damn sexy without showing a Helluva lot I'm sure you'll agree!

"L'uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo" was Dario Argento's premiere directorial outing.......

.....AND it is anything but a slack fest!

For my money, this is just a spectacular shot!

Sam Dalmas has finally got a lead on a strange character in a yellow slicker!

He follows him, and when he gets to the final destination and opens up the elevator door.........

............He finds himself knee deep in some kind of weird convention where everybody is dressed the same!!!

What's a guy suposed to do????

More investigation leads him to the local perv's palace!!

A great shot, so simple, but so, so very effective!!!

This is nothing more than an awesome composite fade shot!!

What you got going on there home boy??

Atmospheric and unpredictable,"L'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo" is indeed a film worth checking out, and my recommendation is that you do!!!
