Digitmovies presents on CD the complete full stereo original motion picture score composed and conducted by Stelvio Cipriani for the 1969 movie “Femina ridens” (aka “The laughing woman”), directed by Piero Schivazappa and starring Philippe Leroy, Dagmar Lassander and Lorenza Guerrieri. The movie tells with grotesque tones the story of Doctor Sayer (Philippe Leroy), director of a philanthropic institute. A childhood trauma makes his life uncomfortable: he has a recurrent fear of being killed by a woman during a sexual act in a similar way as the scorpion female kills the male.
LA MORTE CAMMINA CON I TACCHI ALTI
“La morte cammina con i tacchi alti” (aka “Death walks on high heels”) shot in 1971 by director Luciano Ercoli (his second thriller movie after “Le foto proibite di una signora perbene”) is a Giallo that follows the Argento- school, with a serial killer dressed in dark and a women destined for violent death. The Ercoli movie has its own particularity: mixing the thrilling sequences, black comedy tones and elements typical for the Agatha Christie novels, placing the plot in England. The real surprise of “La morte cammina con i tacchi alti” is the genial presentation of the murder’s scene just after half-time of the movie, when the viewer has already been conquered by the sympathy of the murdered female protagonist’s character. Digitmovies releases on record the complete original score composed and conducted by Stelvio Cipriani.
L’IGUANA DALLA LINGUA DI FUOCO
This CD edition was made possible thanks again to the help of C.A.M., in whose archives the original stereo master tapes have been stored until today and to the help of M°Cipriani who approved our musical selection. The score is based on a romantic main theme introduced in the Main Titles with a beat arrangement for orchestra feat. vocal of Nora Orlandi (Tr.1).
