Lisa And The Devil (Mario Bava, 1972)

On Tim Lucas’ DVD commentary track for Lisa And the Devil, he asserts that the manner in which Elke Sommer falls in death against a wall is an homage to the death of the Alida Valli nurse character in Franju’s Eyes Without A Face. As Warner Wolf would say, let’s go to the videotape:

Yeah, I guess I buy it. Seeing as Alida Valli is also in the cast of Lisa And The Devil playing the Countess, it’s plausible something like that could be on Bava’s mind.
