Storyline

Christian Gilbranson, Miss Marple's lawyer, persuades her to visit the baronial estate of his step-mother, Carrie Louise Serrocold, an old friend of Marple's. Carrie Louise's devoted husband Lewis has turned the manor house into a halfway house for young men with criminal records and has hopes of expanding the facilities. He confides to Miss Marple that he suspects that someone is slowly poisoning Carrie Louise with arsenic. One of the young charges, Edgar Lawson, claims to be Lewis' illegitimate child and wants his alleged father to acknowledge him. While they are arguing behind closed doors a gun is discharged, and the visiting Gilbranson is found murdered in another room. It is up to Miss Marple to aid crusty Inspector Curry discover the murderer's and poisoner's identities. Written by Gabe Taverney (duke1029@aol.com)

White-haired Agatha Christie mystery; rusty and dawdling...
7 July 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Amateur sleuth Miss Marple visits London, is asked by an old friend to drop in on an elderly woman acquaintance whose life may be in danger. Despite Helen Hayes as Jane Marple, and Bette Davis in one of her final performances, this television-made Agatha Christie yarn is colorlessly cast, poorly written and directed, creaking and dreary the entire way through. Our introductions to the square, galumphing characters are impossibly awkward, and Hayes doesn't give her famous character the fresh spin required. Still doing what she did in 1970's "Airport" (and most likely beyond), Hayes slips around corners with 'cute' wide eyes and disagreeable looks, like a perturbed squirrel. Davis, John Mills, and Leo McKern (reunited with Hayes from 1977's "Candleshoe") try somewhat to inject a little bounce into the scenario, but it's a leadweight affair with no particularly inventive denouement.
