A 1976 classic released in 1977 also known as Blazing Magnum starring three of my favorite performers Stuart Whitman, John Saxon and Martin Landau as well as the talented Gayle Hunnicutt, looking radiant. Wide screen print is sharp and clear though slightly grainy which adds to the look of the film. Color is good. Action scenes are fast and furious with a memorable opening score. The cover is reversible with the poster for Blazing Magnum as well. A fine job all round.
Here we have an unusual hybrid of genres blending the Crime film with Giallo who-done-it slasher murders. Director Alberto Di Martino's 'SHADOWS IN AN EMPTY ROOM' aka 'BLAZING MAGNUM' aka 'UNA MAGNUM SPECIAL PER TONY SAITTA'-1976 utilizes American actors and an Italian film crew lensed in Montreal, Canada. Pretty Carole Laure is poisoned at a college party where there are many suspects including Martin Landau and Gayle Hunnicutt. Unfortunately , she happens to be Stuart Whitman's sister who is a no holds barred shoot first ask questions later kind of cop who teams up with John Saxon to find the murderer. De Martino throws car chases, expensive necklaces, transvestites, and Giallo trappings to tell the story which emerges as one of his most accomplished works. Dipping into many genres during the Sixties and Seventies ( my favorites are 'OPERATION KID BROTHER' aka 'OK CONNERY' -1965 and 'THE ANTICHRIST' aka 'L'ANTICRISTO' -1974) usually borrowing themes from American counterparts,...
very enjoyable movie, especially the car chase. I will watch it again. keeps you on the edge of your seat. I highly recommend.
