La Coda dello scorpione (Case of the Scorpion's Tail)

Sergio Martino's La Coda dello scorpione has more or less everything you want from a good giallo. Clever twists and turns, the always dependable George Hilton, gorgeous women (Swedish stunner Anita Strindberg and the beautiful Evelyn Stewart), a killer with black gloves, a good Nicolai score and liberal J&B product placement. A favourite of mine ever since I first saw it.
Generally the posters design for Martino's gialli are quite striking, but it's hard to get too excited about this locandina.
