Mystère (Daggers Eyes)

Made a couple of years after Carole Bouquet's role as Melina Havelock in the Bond film For Your Eyes Only. In Mystère she stars a call girl that becomes the target of a professional hit man when she gets her hand on some negatives that show a politician's assassination. The film itself is more of a political thriller then giallo and it's not as good as Vanzina's more well known giallo, Nothing Underneath (just released on DVD by Njuta films)

Thanks for pointing this film out! I have never heard of it. The poster is superb and with classic Italian actors like John Steiner, Janet Agren and Gabriele Tinte it sure is an example of Italian cinema cashing in on an actress made famous by an international movie she was in.

Glad to be of assistance Mirko. It's not a great film by any means, but if you're a fan of the genre and the actors in it you might enjoy it. I think it's a really beautiful poster as well.
