Trivia

Miss Marple's recently-deceased uncle was Rear Admiral Sir Hubert Marple; her grandfather Sir Bertram Marple (Admiral of the Fleet) founded The Cape of Good Hope Youth Reclamation Centre and its training ship the Battledore. See more »

Goofs

Although the training ship is supposed to wooden, and the long shots of the estuary show her as being solely a sail powered vessel, when we see the close shots on deck - for example, as Miss Marple is piped aboard - we now seem to have a funnel and steel walls. See more »

Quotes

Miss Marple: [to Craddock] Embezzlement is one thing - proof of triple murder is another. Softly, softly catches monkey in a mousetrap.

Very Enjoyable
4 December 2002 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

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.
