Trivia

Although the first couple of Rutherford's Marple films did well at the UK box office. the third did not and this fourth and final effort sat on the shelf in the UK for more than a year before finally getting released in October 1965 as the bottom half of a double bill with The Sandpiper.

Goofs

The brisk Dr Crump says that the police are "just across the road" from the Trust's meeting. Although this seems incorrect as the County Constabulary HQ is sited next door to Milchester House where the meeting took place, there is actually a road between the two buildings. It is, however, more likely to be described as a lane than a road. See more »

The third and arguably best film from the Miss Marple films of the 6o's. This time out Miss Marple must solve a mysterious death concerning a trustee and a snuff box, which eventually lands her on board a ship as an observing trustee. Once aboard, Miss Marple and her presence seemingly invite murder after murder. Margaret Rutherford furls her sails and lends the film her gargantuan aplomb. She is a battleship on screen. The cast also includes Stringer Davis(real-life husband) and Charles Tingwell(Inspector Craddock) reprising earlier roles. Lionel Jeffries is the ship's captain and he is simply marvelous as he bemoans Marple's presence and even calling her "a Jonah and an ill wind blowing." Definitely a treat and comic tour-de-force for Rutherford, who we get to see fence no less, and Jeffries.
