1) FOUR FLIES marked the final collaboration between Dario and Ennio Morricone until THE STENDHAL SYNDROME 25 years later. Morricone had scored THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE and CAT O'NINE TAILS previously, so up until that point the maestro had composed scores for all of Argento's directorial efforts. I think the scores Morricone composed for Argento are incredible and the one for FOUR FLIES is, for me, among the best of his work. So what happened? Did they have a falling out or was it because Argento wanted to pursue the progressive rock that would accompany many of his later films?

2) Over the years there has been talk of a project Argento and Cozzi were working on in the 1970s that never came to fruition - an adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein that was to have been set in Nazi Germany. Whatever became of this project and in light of Argento's decision to make a film based on Bram Stoker's Dracula, is it a project that could be resurrected if the new film is a success?
