Book Excerpt of the Day

"Piero Umiliani delivered a thoroughly groovy score for Mario Bava’s Five Dolls for an August Moon, which presents a series of grisly murders in a story line similar to Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians. Never before has a group of people been knocked off one by one to such an absurdly breezy, fun-loving musical backdrop. …a mood so light it is tempting to think that Umiliani never even saw the film when he delivered the music."

– from Chapter 6: A Fearful Earful of Kristopher Spencer’s Film and Television Scores, 1950-1979
