Strange Shadows In An Empty Room (1976) aka Blazing Magnum
Clip: Tranny Fight
Also known as Special Magnum. This Italian production was filmed in my hometown of Ottawa the year I was born, and just down the highway in Montreal. A strange mix of Euro Crime and Giallo elements, it has rarely been seen by the genre fans who would appreciate it. But I may be a little biased... seeing shots of Ottawa in an Italian police film is about as good as it gets for me.
Directed by Alberto De Martino
Starring Stuart Whitman, John Saxon, Tisa Farrow and Martin Landau.
