La Ragazza dal pigiama giallo (The Pyjama Girl Case)
Flavio Mogherini's La Ragazza dal pigiama giallo is an unusual giallo. Lacking many of the elements normally associated with the genre and one of the few gialli loosely based on a real murder (the only other one that springs to mind at the moment is Camillo Teti's L'Assassino è ancora tra noi). The story unfolds through extensive use of flashbacks as we follow both through Inspector Thompson's (Ray Milland) investigation and the events leading up to the murder of the gorgeous Glenda (Dalila di Lazzaro). A very different but worthwhile effort.
