It is a real shame, but this is a poor film. The potential is there with a good, strong cast, but the story is weak, there are far too many predictable moments and occasions when there is a try at humour which fails miserably. I am surprised that it has been rated as a Comedy. What this film has got going for it, and the only reason I didn't score it 1 out of 10, are the performances from most of the actors, particularly Joan Hickson and Irene Handl (playing a straight role for a change). It is worth watching to see the usual British character actors (Cyril Chamberlain, Sydney Tafler etc) and the wonderful Leslie Phillips and gorgeous Geraldine McEwen who, of course, shares the film with another "Miss Marple"! However, I doubt I will ever sit through it again.
