Synopsis


The Bird with the Crystal Plumage
This trend-setting thriller put its director, Dario Argento, on the international map and began a flood of imitative mystery-horror hybrids which dominated Italian genre output in the early 1970s. Tony Musante, best known for the television series Toma, portrays an American who witnesses the murder of a woman at a trendy Rome art gallery. Before long, Musante finds himself targeted by a mysterious killer. Based on a story by Byron Edgar Wallace, Bird and hints at the flamboyance which would become Argento's trademark. This and Argento's subsequent two films Il Gatto a Nove Code and Quattro Mosche di Velluto Grigio were much less horror-oriented than his later work. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

    Dario Argento's first film still impresses today, and this crystal clear HD print shows it off to good effect. Really worth every penny.

    Great package with lots of extras and a cool supplement. Film has been restored from a 4K negative and looks like it was shot yesterday. Classic Argento that puts a lot of contemporary thrillers to shame. Limited edition release and highly recommended.

    This is Dario Argento's first film, and it was released by Arrow. The edition I received comes with a poster, a booklet and a dvd and blu-ray edition of the film. Another great Arrow release as usual.
