Arranging a little extra insurance my friend.
Oh really? Personally I always feel perfectly safe with British railways. Mind you its very different in France, isn't it?

Tony Randall emerges from Borehamwood Studios' Stage 4 to introduce the film and acknowledge his own starring credit, first as himself and then in full Poirot make-up and character. See more »
Tony Randall is perfectly cast as Poirot if one was doing a comedy take-off on the Christie Hero. Anita Ekberg & Robert Morley do well, but it's the very familiar and delightful Margaret Rutherford (and Stringer Davis) who give this good picture a boost! I went with the comedy and found this rare effort smashingly well done. Recommended highly for those who like comedy with their Christie. A 9 from me.
