Returning to her country mansion after spending a month living at a very posh hotel, Henriette is met by her husband Giorgio,who gives his wife the good news that he is about to sign a huge business deal which will allow them to move away together to Canada. Feeling uneasy with the speed that Giorgio has sorted out the deal with, Henriette requests her husband to give her time to think about them agreeing to the offer.

As most already know, the term "giallo" (Italian for "yellow") originally referred to a series of extremely popular mystery novels (by authors like Edgar Wallace, Agatha Christie, and James M. Cain) which were published in Italy by Mondadori beginning in the late '20s and were distinguished by their yellow covers. The heroine here -an avid giallo fan who "reads too many mysteries"- is convinced her husband is a notorious wife-killer intent on doing her in and at one point a character is actually seen reading an "Edgar Wallace super giallo". Based on a playful play by Edgar Wallace, it's definitely an amusing footnote in the Italian horror sub-genre's genealogy (it can legitimately claim to be "the first") but don't get too excited -there's a zero body count and bears no resemblance to the "giallo" of the '60s and '70s. An "historically significant" curio at best but a fun one, nonetheless.
