The Tram (1973)

One of two tv movies in the series Door into Darkness directed by Dario Argento.

When a woman is found murdered on a busy city tram, a detective goes to all lengths to figure out how it happened and why nobody witnessed it.

Little seen and not in the best of shape quality wise, but still more than watchable, The Tram is an hour of intriguing giallo mystery. Argento, who also wrote this episode is meticulous in his theorizing thus allowing us into the detective's thought process but not giving any clues before they are worked out onscreen therefore creating amateur crime investigators out of any viewer who carefully goes along with the plot.

This is CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, thirty years before Anthony Zuiker created it.

Recommended.
