Production

Director Marcello Avallone described his original desire for the film to make a film related to "the Fantastic, I wrote a 'noir', a genre we rarely did in Italy."[1] Italian film historian and critic Roberto Curti stated that the film was not a film noir, but a ghost story.[1] According to Erna Schurer, the film was funded by "a mafioso...he used to pay us by putting money inside a newspaper, I remember him coming over in weekends, carrying these small packages..."[2]

The film was shot in Mondello, Sicilly in 1969.[3]

Release

It took two years before Un gioco per Eveline was submitted to the Italian Board of Censors.[2] was distributed theatrically in Italy by Panta Cinematografica on 16 July 1971.[1] The film grossed a total of 43,833,000 Italian lire on its domestic release.[1] Avallone was so disappointed by the results of the film, that he gave up on film and returned to television documentaries until the film Cugine mie in 1976.[2]
