THE CAT O’ NINE TAILS (1971) ** ½

In this sluggish but worthwhile thriller from Dario (Inferno) Argento, Karl (A Streetcar Named Desire) Malden stars as a blind man who teams up with James (Beneath the Planet of the Apes) Franciscus to solve a murder.  It’s uneven but it has its moments (a guy getting run over by a train, a scene involving some poisoned milk and the final confrontation with the killer).  This was Argento’s second film and it’s far from his best, but his fans will definitely wanna check it out.  He did Four Flies on Grey Velvet next.  Music by Ennio Morricone.
