The Girl Who Knew Too Much

This new release is a must for Mario Bava fans and anyone with an interest in giallo. It includes both versions of the film: the Italian La Ragazza Che Sapeva Troppo (titled, in English, The Girl Who Knew Too Much), and US cut The Evil Eye. Simply watching the two trailers (also included) will give you an idea of how different they are. There's also a version with audio commentary by Tim Lucas (author of Mario Bava: All The Colours Of The Dark) which includes a fascinating collection of facts and anecdotes with surprises even for die hard fans.

In addition to these, there's a featurette on Letícia Román nd the character of the Girl, an interview with John Saxon (who flew to Italy to play her love interest thinking he was going to be in an art film), and an introduction to the film itself by journalist Alan Jones. There are really no weak links here, so on purchasing this blu-ray, make sure to set aside the time to watch it properly. It's a fitting tribute to an iconic genre film.
