Delitto d'autore (The Author's Crime)

Although I've had the film for a while now, it wasn't until recently that I had the chance to check out Mario Sabatini's fairly rare giallo. Unfortunately (but perhaps not unsurprisingly) it wasn't the lost gem I had hoped for. Generic and instantly forgettable, the film featured to some locations that could (and probably would) have been used to better effect in the hands of a more competent director than Sabatini. Not even the presence of Sylva Koscina, Pier Paolo Capponi, Luigi Pistilli and Krista Nell can save this below average giallo.

No info on who's responsible for the poster art, but you got to love that amateurishly added underwear.
