There is a frequent mention of the place 'Shimoga' in the movie. At the time of the novel being written, Shimoga was indeed part of the kingdom of Mysore. By the time movie was made, kingdom of Mysore ceased to exist after Indian independence in 1947.

A great ensemble cast. Superb direction. An amazing mystery. The finest of the Christie film versions. Finney is the most amazing screen Poirot since the great Charles Laughton. He's devilish as much as he is clever and cunning. Beautifully crafted and scripted, the film is one of the finest of the genre. Not to be missed.
