Gabriele Acerbo of Cologno Monzese, Italy poses with his copy of MARIO BAVA ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK in front of his astonishing quattro-fogli poster for Bava's LA FRUSTA E IL CORPO ("The Whip and the Body"). Gabriele is a writer-director-producer for Sky TV and among his credits are the outstanding 2004 documentary MARIO BAVA OPERAZIONE PAURA, in which I was pleased to appear alongside Ennio Morricone, Roger Corman, Dino De Laurentiis, Mario Monicelli, members of the Bava family, and many other luminaries.
We've also heard by mail from some other Bava luminaries! Producer Alfredo Leone writes: "Thank You both for a task well done. You have captured the very soul of a great artist and human being who taught the world how to accept life and death with humility."
HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON star Stephen Forsyth: "Thanks for my copy of your wonderful book! I’m so glad to see the results of your passion, dedication and curiosity come to fruition. The book looks even better than I imagined and it is so well organized and beautifully illustrated that the size does not overwhelm. It will be an interesting and informative read for me. I'm sure your rich and detailed prose will bring new understanding and insight to my time spent with Mario. I look forward to enjoying your work of art."
And we also received a postcard from Dante Di Paolo, star of THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH and BLOOD AND BLACK LACE: "I am extremely proud to share a small ray of the spotlight that glows on Mario Bava's splendid works of art in filmmaking, and than you for being so kind to me in your book. MARIO BAVA ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK will always be 'on the ready' on my coffee table. You did one hell of a job making this all happen! I found it to be both extremely informative and entertaining!"
