The Pyjama Girl Case [The Pyjama Girl]

N.p. N.p., 1976. Original Treatment script for the 1977 Italian giallo film.

Director John Huston's copy. Laid in is a typed letter signed, dated January 28, 1977, from noted agent Paul Kohner on Kohner's stationery, encouraging Huston to read the script and consider directing the film: "Dear John, / Please find enclosed copy of the screenplay of PYJAMA GIRL / the Australian project about which we spoke this evening. / Fondly / Paul / P.S. / This is not yet a firm offer, John, but it may well be one by Monday."

Huston did not direct the film, instead it became an Italian-Spanish co-production, shot in Australia, and directed by Flavio Mogherini, based on one of Australia’s most famous unsolved murders.

A little seen but curious entry into the giallo canon, lacking the usual shocking moments of most giallos, the film would not receive a wide release, or any at all in the US, until 2006 DVD by Blue Underground
