A great introduction to Miss Marple with the opening of the movie. Wonderful performances and gorgeous sets and costumes. It keeps your interest and is a comfortable film to relax with. 8/10.
While not one of the better Agatha Christie stories, this was one of the first I ever saw adapted for the screen and I have a big soft spot for it. When I was young, I used to watch Murder, She Wrote – so seeing Angela Lansbury as Miss Marple was awesome. All the (even then) classic actors in one film was also fun to watch. Not especially deep, or particularly innovative, this movie is just fun and relaxing – which is all we need sometimes. 9/10.
