Who Saw Her Die? 1971 ***

Aldo Lado’s 1972 thriller is a curiosity, mainly because the action seems to resemble that of Nicolas Roeg’s genre classic. Don’t Look Now. One-time James Bond George Lazenby plays grieving father Franco, whose daughter dies in the opening sequence, and despite heading off to Venice, Franco is haunted by a veiled figure that he believes is responsible for the killing.  The similarities don’t stop there, but Lado’s film is more practically minded, and Franco’s investigation doesn’t have the metaphysical aspects of Roeg’s masterpiece. Still, it’s a good thriller, beautifully scored by Ennio Morricone and a moody sense of 1970’s Venice.
