THE FOX WITH A VELVET TAIL REVIEWED
“The Fox with a Velvet Tail” plays with relationships and your exes’ desires to kill you. It’s a light murder mystery from before the Giallo style was established. But, you get to see pretty people try to murder each other in pseudo Hitchcockian fashion. I guess Spanish giallo attempted to do new things. But, the emphasis on people trying to mind-bang each other got old by the end of the first hour. Well, at least the original score was memorable.

The Plot Thus Far
This 1971 Italian/Spanish giallo is a hugely enjoyable and very stylish murder mystery set on the luxurious Côte d’Azur. Spanish director José María Forqué – who later made the controversial Beyond Erotica – brings together a talented and good looking cast, one of the best cinematographers of the day (Alejandro Ulloa) and a fantastic, lounge style score from Maestro Piccioni to create a twisty, and twisted, tale of deception and revenge. The director’s long career at the more prestigious end of Spanish cinema and the presence of award winning scripter Rafael Azcona – who worked with many top European film makers – give the film an edge of sophistication alongside its enjoyably devious narrative.
