Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Miss Jane Marple: [in riding habit] Oh, Miss Milchrest, good morning. How nice to see you again.
Miss Milchrest: [apparently frightened] Good morning.
Miss Jane Marple: Don't look so frightened, my dear. I've done my quota of murders for today.

Great Film
12 August 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Probably my favorite Rutherford Marple, this movie is funny, suspensful, and wildly entertaining. Whatever Agatha Christie thought of this movie, she greatly admired Margaret Rutherford, dedicating one of her best books The Mirror Crack'd to her. Once again, great support acting from Stringer Davis (Rutherford's real life husband) and from Robert Morley. Don't you think that Inspector Craddock would have learned to listen to Miss Marple by this movie?
