L'Uccello dalle piume di cristallo (The Bird with the Crystal Plumage)

It's never going to be a proper giallo blog without some Argento posters. I'll start off by posting the locandina from his 1970 debut L'Uccello dalle piume di cristallo. A very striking and brutal image by P. Franco and one of my personal favorites.

Hi Peter, this locadina is one of my favorite! As a youth I found it a very disturbing picture what haunted me for a long time! When I finally saw the movie I wasn't disappointed as you often are when you see the movie after having seen the locadina first!

Thanks for your comment Mirko. It's been nearly 40 years, but it's still a very powerful image. I'm not sure if they'd get away with poster art like this these days. Film holds up just as well. An essential giallo and endlessly watchable.
