5 DOLLS FOR AN AUGUST MOON (1970) dir Mario Bava w/William Berger, Ira von Fürstenberg, Edwige Fenech, Howard Ross [78 min; DCP]
An eccentric jazz score by Piero Umiliani and dazzling cinematography are among the pleasures of this giallo, wherein five associates travel to a remote Mediterranean locale owned by a wealthy industrialist who plots to obtain a secret formula.
