Trivia

Although it looks like the film was shot on an actual island with a mansion, it is far from the truth. The production was shot in Crimea, utilizing the peninsula's two famous mansions, the Swallow's Nest and the Vorontsov Estate. Both houses were situated on large, circular cliffs that Crimea is famous for, thus creating the illusion of an island. However, when the house is seen in the exterior scenes, it is actually a scale model, shot with actors using forced perspective. See more »

...As Dark and Grim as Ms. Christie Intended!!!
30 June 2003 | by (OC, Calif.) – See all my reviews

ahh.....After a difficult search, I managed to find a video copy (with subtitles) of the film described above. The other reviewer was the reason I was prompted to find this film. It is indeed the best adaptation of A. Christie's classic suspense thriller. The most gratifying thing is being able to see everybody end up exactly where they are supposed to be in the book. After all, it is called, "And Then There Were None," not called, "And Then There Were Two." Acting, direction, and photography are exquisite. Keep eyes on auction sites for people who have copies of this one....it IS out there somewhere!!
