Olive Films has announced that they are adding the crime drama The Girl Who Knew Too Much to their upcoming slate of Blu-ray releases. The film was directed by Francis D. Lyon and stars Adam West, Nancy Kwan, Robert Alda, and Nehemiah Persoff. The Girl Who Knew Too Much will be available in stores and online beginning on May 28th.
In the film, a runaway truck containing the corpse of a slain gang leader rolls into a California nightclub owned by Johnny Cain (West), a hard bitten former free-lance adventurer. The gang threatens to kill Johnny, unless he solves the murder. The CIA also investigates – because it turns out that the slaying was part of a long-range Communist plan to take over the crime syndicate. Cain’s search for clues leads him into a maze of beautiful girls, mysterious Oriental statues and murderous spies.
The Girl Who Knew Too Much had a limited release in November of 1969. The film is one of the first films that West completed after his successful run on the television series Batman came to an end.
