Today’s instalment of the Movie Matters Podcast sees co-hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie taking a look at a pair of thrillers from the heyday of Italian cult cinema, both starring distinctive American actress Mimsy Farmer. First up, we begin by discussing Farmer’s career and unique appeal with special help from friend of the show, author Troy Howarth (SO DEADLY, SO PERVERSE). We then cover two distinctly different films which nonetheless share a great many characteristics: 1974’s THE PERFUME OF THE LADY IN BLACK and 1975’s AUTOPSY.
The music in today’s episode is from THE PERFUME OF THE LADY IN BLACK by Nicola Piovani, and AUTOPSY and FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET by Ennio Morricone.
Special thanks to Troy Howarth, Sandy Richardson, Leonard Jacobs, Andrew Liverod, Torsten Luth and Cevin Moore for their thoughts on today’s featured films, and to Ian Hill for his feedback on our recent Luciano Ercoli/Nieves Navarro double bill.
