Death Occurred Last Night
A lonely widower appeals to the police to find his missing daughter. The sceptical police officer picks up the case but it becomes murder when her body is recovered. Now they must find the culprit before the vengeful father does first. Genre master Duccio Tessari (A Pistol for Ringo, The Bloodstained Butterfly) adapts Italy’s premier noir writer Giorgio Scerbanenco for this investigative thriller. Death Occurred Last Night goes into methodical detail of the investigation before getting to the titular death, focusing much more on character and process. Raf Vallone (The Italian Job) gives a tortured performance as the father, while Frank Wolf (Once Upon a Time in the West) stars as the dedicated cop.
