Trivia

This movie, as all existent versions of "Ten Little Indians," is based not on the novel by Agatha Christie but on her very similar play. While the identity of the murderer is the same in both versions, the outcome of who survives the murderer's plot is very different. See more »

Goofs

The cat, supposedly playing with Mrs. Brent's ball of yarn, bats the ball downstairs, leading others to follow the trail of yarn back to Mrs. Brent's room where they discover her body. However, the trail of yarn was obviously placed by stagehands starting at the stair rail then working towards the bedroom. The loops are draped one over the other going back to the body. It would be impossible to unwind the yarn from the ball and have each loop fall under the previous loop as presented. See more »

Quotes

Judge Francis J. Quinncannon: Mr. Owen could only come to the island in one way. It's perfectly clear. Mr. Owen is one of us.

Crazy Credits

The first line of the nursery rhyme appears onscreen - "Ten Little Indians Went Out To Dine...." - superimposed over a set of small statues of Native Americans - this is immediately followed by the film's title "And Then There Were None". See more »

Masterpiece by Rene Clair

Rene Clair weaves the quintessential spider web with brilliant camera work including unusual but effective angles, snappy dialogue, and magnificent performances by ten impeccably cast artists. The viewer is drawn into the anxiety, claustrophobia, terror, and resignation felt one-by-one by each of the twelve weekend "guests" of Mr. Owen. Any mystery, suspense or thriller fan will be incomplete without seeing this work of absolute genius. My score: 10+/10.
