There is a reference to the fictional UK county of Rutherfordshire, an obvious tip-of-the-hat to the film's star. See more »
Miss Marple supposedly searches through the cabin of Lt. Compton, when she finds the suspicious envelope. However, the door sign reads "Capt. Rhumstone". When we take into account that each officer moved into the cabin of the next lower ranking officer, the Captain now lives in the cabin of Commander Breeze-Connington, and that would be the cabin Miss Marple is searching through. Moreover, when moving into the new cabins, all the officers' cabins appear to be located in one single row. Later in the movie, however, they appear to be quite irregularly spread around the deck.

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.
