“Lado’s direction can’t be faulted. From the opening credit montage of city streets as seen from the cab of an ambulance to the way Lado frames virtually every scene, Short Night is the very definition of ‘eye candy.’”
– C.D. Workman, rockshockpop.com
“The horror elements in Aldo Lado’s giallo murder mystery are fiercely strong, not from an onslaught of blood and guts, but from the tensions of the situations…a clever cinematic exercise.”
– Buzz McClain, allmovie.com
Short Night of Glass Dolls (La Corta Notte delle Bambole di Vetro, 1971) is a mystery-heavy giallo film, the début of director Aldo Lado. It stars Jean Sorel as an American reporter, trapped inside his apparently dead body, but still trying to decipher the disappearance of his beautiful girlfriend (Barbara Bach). Set in a Prague depicted as remarkably depraved, the film also stars the great Ingrid Thulin, and is highlighted by a stunning score from the one and only Ennio Morricone, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
