Albert Aachen climbs to the top of the diving boards during his aquaclown rehearsal, picking up a bottle with his right hand to take a swig from it, with the left theatrically outstretched. The shot changes to a close-up, and Aachen now has the bottle in his left hand. He smiles and the shot changes to a long one - where the bottle is now back a few steps behind him on the platform as he dives. See more »
Where have you been? What have you been doing?
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.
