Svegliati e Uccidi (Lutring) (1966, ITA/FRA) C-102m. * D: Carlo Lizzani. Starring Robert Hoffmann, Lisa Gastoni, Gian Maria Volonté, Claudio Camaso, Renato Niccolai, Ottavio Fanfani. Early Italian crime movie lacks the pace and verve of later examples. Film chronicles the relationship between jewel thief Hoffmann and nightclub singer Gastoni, as they run from the police. Then Gastoni contacts the commissioner to prevent Hoffmann from getting in too deep. Barely interesting. Edited by Franco Fraticelli. A song is by Ennio Morricone. English titles: TOO SOON TO DIE, WAKE UP AND DIE.
