The Girl Who Knew Too Much (1963)
86 min.
Directed by Mario Bava.
With Leticia Roman, John Saxon, Valentina Cortese, Dante De Paolo.
This elegant, scary Bava film has American tourist Nora Davis (Roman) visiting Rome and witnessing a murder during which she almost dies herself.

Befriended and taken in by a local, she's certain the murder she saw was real and begins an investigation which leads her to discover a possible string of "alphabet killings."

Only problem is, the infamous "alphabet killings" occurred some 10 years before! Could there be a copycat killer mirroring the previous crimes? Regardless, will Nora be next on the madman's list?

The web thickens (literally) as she tries to protect herself from the faceless killer.

Beautifully filmed, with a solid performance from the always reliable Saxon as Roman's beau, this culminates in a deliciously bizarre pre-Argento extravaganza!

Superior all around, a must see.

Also known as The Evil Eye.

Italian: La ragazza che sapeva troppo.
