Afternoon - Italian Film Screening at the NGA East Building - Archives
(L’uccello dalle piume di cristallo, Dario Argento, 1970, 96 minutes)
Sam Dalmas (Tony Musante), an American writer in Rome, witnesses an attack inside an art gallery while he’s trapped in a glass foyer. Based on The Screaming Mimi by American pulp fiction writer Fredric Brown, The Bird with the Crystal Plumagerecounts the lurid incident playing over and over inside Sam’s head until, after other events ensue, his recollection of the original crime is called into question. Dario Argento’s directorial debut (shown here in original Italian release version) is an archetypal gothic giallo, so named for the yellow covers of paperback crime thrillers popular in postwar Italy.
