It comes from the books (2)

The film which is unanimously considered as the first Giallo opens with a young American lady reading a giallo book on her plane to Rome.
It is Mario Bava's "La ragazza che sapeva troppo" (The girl who knew too much - 1963).

And that detail is so symbolic it can only be a statement : the giallo as a cinema genre was born.
