I enjoyed watching this film so much. It has to be the best of the Miss Marple films made from 1961 - 1965, starring Margaret Rutherford.
Miss Marple is working as a trustee of a fund in association with a ship that handles young criminals. On a return visit from the ship, a trustee is murdered and Miss Marple decides to go on board the ship to find any clues about the murder, suspecting the murderer is a crew member, causing much distress for the Captain and the Inspector leading the investigation.
This film is a good crime-comedy feature from 1964 and I'm sure everybody who likes that genre will enjoy this film tremendously.
