Cosa avete fatto a Solange? (What Have You Done to Solange?)

I've been lazy the last couple of days, so I thought I'd make up for it by posting the two alternate posters for Massimo Dallamano's Cosa avete fatto a Solange?. Made in 1972, Solange is the first film in the loosely held together "schoolgirls-in-peril" trilogy that was written by Dallamano. A firm favourite of mine, this is an excellent giallo set in London featuring a great cast and a beautiful soundtrack by Ennio Morricone. Dallamano went on to direct La Polizia chiede aiuto (What Have They Done to Your Daughters?) in 1974, but unfortunately he passed away in a car accident in 1976 before he could conclude the triolgy, so the last film Engima Rosso (Rings of Fear) was directed by Alberto Negrin.
There's no signature on the locandina posted above, but the one below is made by the great Sandro Simeoni aka Symeoni.

I have a real soft spot for SOLANGE. It may not be the best giallo, but it's one of my favourites. I really love these locandine. My Belgian SOLANGE poster (which was one of my "dream" posters) is it the framer right now and will hopefully be ready in the next few days.

Solange is one of the first gialli I ever saw, apart from the Argento ones, and for that reason alone I'll always have a soft spot for it. I still think it's a great giallo though.
I can certainly understand the Belgian poster being one of your "dream" posters, it's beautiful one. Shame they never used that artwork for a locandina.

I am a big supporter of Solange because I love Karin Baal in her rol as a tormented wife fighting for her marriage! Pitty she disappeared completely from the film scene!
