By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER on Nov. 27 2011
Format: DVD
Bava pays explicit homage to Hitchcock in this fun, mostly light
hearted mystery.

An American girl vacationing in Rome witnesses what might be a
murder (or is it her overactive imagination, spurred on by her love
of cheap mystery novels?). And before you know it, she's the
possible target of a serial killer.

The black and white photography is beautiful, but Bava tones his
style down just a bit, and it works; the photography compliments
the story, without swamping it,.

There are weak spots, like an annoying voice over that insists on
explaining what the images are making very clear by themselves,
and performances that are uneven (especially in supporting roles).
But, the bottom line is, if it wasn't in Italian, one could even believe
this was a Hitchcock film, which is a pretty high compliment...

This early giallo is high on style and athmosphere and one can easily see how Bava influenced Dario Argento. I myself am much more of an Argento fan then Bava but this little thriller is actually one of Bava's better outings.
The story is good and keeps you guessing until the very end and the finale is quite suspenseful.

This is not a horror film even though it was once shown in America as "The Evil Eye". Instead, it's a very tame little mystery with Bava's giallo atmosphere and little else. An "American" girl (Italian actress Leticia Roman) comes to Rome to visit an old family friend who up and dies on her. She then witnesses a murder but there's no body to back her up to the police. So she starts her own investigation ala Nancy Drew style. A bland John Saxon plays a doctor who believes her and provides clues to the mystery. Lots of creepy set-ups but no action keep this one from being as good as it could have been. Not bad as long as you don't expect too much but it was way too dull for me.

Many fans of director Mario Bava seem to underrate this film because it isn't as violent or cynical as his later film BLOOD AND BLACK LACE. Personally, I find that to be one of the things that reccomends the film to me; that the film isn't a bloodbath full of loathsome people where the only interest is in seeing how spectacularly unpleasant their demises will be. Although there are holes and improbablilites in the plot, this is generally a suspenseful, humorous film, solidly anchored by the appealing performance of Leticia Roman as the heroine, Nora Davis, an American tourist visiting an old family friend and falling into the middle of a terrifying mystery involving a serial killer who has been attacking women on or near Rome's famous Spanish Steps for almost a decade. Nora witnesses what may have been the latest murder shortly after being attacked by a mugger, so people suspect that she may have imagined the whole thing, but she knows otherwise, and with the help of a friendly doctor (played very nicely by John Saxon), she sets out to prove it.
The result is a stylish, entertaining thriller, full of moody atmosphere and eerie set-pieces, such as Nora's rondevous with someone who can help her solve the mystery in an empty but brightly-lit apartment and the harrowing sequence that begins with the death of the family friend, continues with the attack by the mugger on Nora, and ends with her coming to to witness the murder in the Plaza d'Espana, full of rain-slicked streets and moody shadows. Here, Bava proves himself as stylish as anything in Hitchcock, and maybe more so.

While it certainly isn't MARIO BAVA at his best, THE GIRL WHO KNEW TO MUCH is a stylish and unusual thriller which pre-dates BLOOD AND BLACK LACE as one of the earliest examples of the 'giallo' style. No other country but Italy could produced a film with such a unique feeing and 'look'.
The VERY attractive Leticia Romain is excellent as the niave yet plucky heroine who tries to unravel something she witnessed after being mugged. Was it a murder, a dream, or an 'ectoplasmic projection' of a crime committed in the same spot 10 years earlier?
The black and white photography enhances the beauty of Rome and the under-rated John Saxon provides the love interest, some humour and a possible suspect as the doctor who befriends 'Nora' when she arrives in Italy.
A superb unsung milestone in cinema thriller history.
