Movie Info

The corpse of reporter Gregory Moore (Jean Sorel of LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN) is found in a Prague plaza and brought to the local morgue. But Moore is actually alive, trapped inside his dead body and desperately recalling how the mysterious disappearance of his beautiful girlfriend (Barbara Bach of THE SPY WHO LOVED ME) led to a terrifying conspiracy of depravity. Can a reporter with no visible signs of life solve this perverse puzzle before he meets his ultimate deadline?

Audience Reviews for La Corta notte delle bambole di vetro (Short Night of the Glass Dolls)

  • Feb 13, 2014
    A disappointing giallo. The premise is relatively strong - an American journalist in Prague is discovered in a cataleptic stupor, mistaken for dead and delivered to the morgue; will he snap out of it before his own autopsy? - but the flashback story binding the thing together, some random guff about a missing girlfriend and a group of Satanists, is thoroughly dreary and too short on incident. Distinguished only by the presence of Ingrid Thulin and a below-par Morricone score, the best I can say of <i>Short Night of Glass Dolls</i> is that, like many another giallo (<i>The Perfume of the Lady in Black</i>, <i>The House with Laughing Windows</i>, etc), at least it has the courage of its own grisly convictions; the ending is almost worth waiting for.

    An American journalist recalls investigating the disappearance of his Czech girlfriend---as he lies on a mortuary slab, either dead or in a deep catatonic state. Extremely slow-moving and not worth the eventual black magic payoff. The title has nothing to do with anything.

    this a fucking strange one. i watched this mostly because of the morricone score, which is actually a lot more understated/underused than usual. a compelling story and interesting scenery are more than enough to overcome some of the hammy acting. wish they would have done more with the ending.
