Miss Marple refers to a "remarkable novel" of Agatha Christie's, "The Ninth Life". This was an in-joke; her creator wrote no such book. See more »
When the valuable painting at the center of the intrigue was first introduced it appeared that the picture wasn't very large. However when Stringer sets off for London to have it appraised, it looked like it grew to twice the size. See more »
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!
