L'uccello dalle piume di cristallo (The Bird With the Crystal Plumage) Reviews
It was actually a pretty good first film from Dario Argento, who clearly has his style that actually works very well. The twist in the end was really good and the whole mystery was entertaining although not exactly interesting throughout the whole movie. But still it was a good movie.

Seriously the prime suspect for the series of murders in Rome, Italy is not revealed until the very end of the film and it is quite a surprise when they are revealed.
The musical score is excellent. I believe it is the same chap who did the music on Clint Eastwoods spaghetti westerns.
This is an early gem from Argento who went on to direct other classic giallos such as Suspiria.
As always in this genre the cinematography is lush and colourful.
The English dubbing is good considering other films from Italy.
