Storyline

Miss Jane Marple is staying at an elegant hotel from her childhood compliments of her nephew Raymond. Also there is international adventurer Bess Sedgwick and Lady Selena Hazy (Joan Greenwood in her next to last performance). A doorman working at the hotel turns out to be from Bess' past, and when he is killed, she is the prime suspect. But what does his murder have to do with the disappearance of an elderly vicar staying at the hotel, and a string of robberies over the last few months? Miss Marple must find out before the murderer strikes again!!! Written by Mike Hatchett <hatchetts13@webtv.net>

Quotes

Chief Inspector Fred Davy: You'll have to excuse me Miss Marple. I've got to go and see the chambermaid, Rose Sheldon.
Miss Jane Marple: Ah, now, you'd do well to talk to that young woman. I've trained quite a few maids in my time, but I've never seen a bob curtsey like that since the St. Mary Mead players put on a French farce.

I'm a Christie's fan and I love Joan Hickson,the best Miss Marple who ever was.But this story fails to excite me!I like the atmosphere of the luxury hotel,these posh ladies savoring their muffins ,their scones,their pastries ,the film will make you salivate!The depiction of the Bertram's hotel is perfect but it's not enough.

But the story moves too slow,the crime only comes at the end,and the "solution" is downright disappointing.Lady Segdwick's character is over the top ,and her relationship with Elvira is not detailed enough. The story is muddled,involving subplots , even a small train robbery and lacks focus ,Christie's trademark.
