A woman wears a dress with a plunging neckline revealing. Because she is somewhat small chested, the neckline reveals less cleavage and more the sides of her breasts, but only briefly.

A woman who is an author speaks frankly, but not graphically, about sexuality.

A falling stone block almost strikes two people.

A woman fires a small pistol and a man cries out in pain grabbing his leg - we see him tying a handkerchief around his leg that is drenched red.

A doctor performs surgery on a gunshot wound with a significant amount of blood visible (apart from blood, nothing really disturbing is shown).

A woman is found shot in the head - powder burns on the wound are visible, and some dry blood.

As Poirot speculates on whether or not various characters could be the murderer, we see them observing a man getting shot in the leg and then committing the murder which involves shooting a sleeping woman in the head. Some of the renditions show more than others, but none are graphic. At one point we see powder burns on her temple.

A woman is found with her throat cut - not graphic, but there is lots of blood.

A woman is shot while mid-sentence - not graphic.

Several characters smoke and drink.

On two occasions, characters are visibly intoxicated. One of them recites lines of poetry about the use of alcohol.

An woman is given "morphia" to calm her and help her sleep. It is stated that the drug is often used on another character.
