The Case of the Scorpion's Tail (Italian: La coda dello scorpione / Tail of the Scorpion) is a 1971 Italian giallo film directed by Sergio Martino, produced by Luciano Martino and co-written by Ernesto Gastaldi and Eduardo Maria Brochero. It starred George Hilton, Anita Strindberg, Ida Galli and Janine Reynaud, and the music soundtrack was by Bruno Nicolai.
A widow named Lisa (Ida Galli) inherits a small fortune when her husband dies in a freak jet crash. However, before she can escape to a retreat with her secret lover, the widow is brutally slashed to death and the money stolen. Now an insurance investigator (George Hilton) and his journalist love interest must figure out exactly who is murdering anyone involved with the late widow, and why. A strange gold cufflink holds the key to the mystery.
AllMovie called it a "devilishly entertaining giallo thriller".
Adrian Luther Smith wrote "....one of the best of Sergio Martino's impressive batch of thrillers. It has considerable energy, some pleasing exotic locations and is crammed with a great cast of shady characters.....The resulting gory carnage is graphically presented."
