Miss Jane Marple:
[attempting to console her dance partner, who is dismayed that the orchestra has chosen to play a rock song]

Although Margaret Rutherford's take on Miss Marple was not to Agatha Christie's liking she stands out as one of the best Miss Marples in my estimation. She injected a lively quirkiness to the character which has been lacking in recent portrayals.
This is one of my 4 most favorite films Rutherford's timing and expressions are a joy to watch on screen!
