CASE OF THE SCORPION\'S TAIL (1971) Sergio Martino!

An Early Thriller from One of the Genre's Greatest Directors


Original Italian Title: LA CODA DELLO SCORPIONE (The Case of the Scorpion's Tail)

director: Sergio Martino

Lisa Baumer receives 1 million dollars from her husband's life insurance plan after he's killed in a mysterious airplane disaster. Several people suspect Lisa of foul play, including a junkie lover with a blackmail agenda, her husband's mistress Lara who feels entitled to some of the money, and - of course - insurance investigator Peter Lynch. But when Lisa is murdered after cashing her check (and the money goes missing), the case becomes much more complicated.

Today, Sergio Martino mostly helms television projects, directing numerous TV Movies and episodes of the popular Italian series Carabinieri. Sergio is best known for his Italian thrillers (especially ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK, CRAVING DESIRE, and his most recent MOZART IS A MURDERER) but he has successfully directed films in a variety of genres for a half century.
