As was customary film practice at the time, the lightbeam from Crossfield's torch in Black Jack's stable was provided by an actual studio light rather than the actor's prop. This is obvious as the light spot on the wall remains fairly constant whilst the character moves frantically - and at one point the torch casts a clear shadow in its own light. See more »
This movie is one of four films starring Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple. I enjoy all four immensely. It has lots of action, unlike the TV versions of Miss Marple which are laced with nothing but endless reams of boring dialog. It is priceless to watch Ms. Rutherford mounting and riding a horse. As usual, she puts herself in jeopardy at the film's climax to force the murderer into being snared by the long arm of the law. Great fun from start to end.......
