I've seen the Greek version under the title THE FOURTH VICTIM and I quite like this. It's ostensibly a Spanish film, made by Spanish director Eugenio Martin (TERROR EXPRESS, A CANDLE FOR THE DEVIL), but with some Italian actors and crew members along for the ride.

Michael Craig stars as Arthur Anderson whose blonde, pretty wife is found suspiciously drowned in their swimming pool. Because he two previous wives also died strange deaths, Anderson is charged with murder, and only gets off because his motherly housekeeper lies under oath to clear his name. Soon a pretty blonde woman (Carroll Baker) shows up and starts flirting with Anderson but it's clear from the get-go that she may not be who she seems to be. She quickly becomes the fourth Mrs. Anderson (on of the film's numerous AKAs) but is her husband a regular Bluebeard? Is there something else going on? And what is the deal about the mysterious blonde woman played by giallo favorite Marina Malfatti we keep seeing?

Compelling little mystery with another welcome Euro performance by Carroll Baker (a personal favorite), a fantastic Piero Umiliani score and good fun. It's not a top-notch giallo (the pacing may be too slow for some and there isn't much gore) but overall this is a nice little film.

I also really like the outstanding Spanish actor José Luis Lopez Vazquez from the famous short LA CABINA (1972) and the bizarre but excellent drama NO ES BUENO QUE EL HOMBRE ESTÉ SOLO (1973), who delivers a solid performance as the British police inspector.

I'd trust a tramp on the street sooner than I'd trust IMDb.

My Greek tape runs for 83m 46s on PAL video, which is correct - this works out at 87m 15s at 24fps cinema speed.

Does anyone have Italian or Spanish versions of this film?  It seems obvious from the water splashing sound effects heard under the music and some long pauses between the credits on the Greek tape that the titles on black were meant to be printed on action, and whoever did the transfer just snipped out the footage rather than overlay the titles (the same as with earlier cassette releases of FIVE DOLLS FOR AN AUGUST MOON).
