The original script was much more faithful to the original Agatha Christie novel with the setting on an island and the original grim conclusion of the book. However, producer Harry Alan Towers changed it at the last second when he realized that it would be cheaper to shoot in the African outback and that the novel's ending is less marketable than Christie's happier resolution from the play version of the story.

far to be the best adaptation, it could be a nice exercise. not convincing, mediocre, interesting, in little measure, only for presence of Herbert Lom and Donald Pleasence, its big sin is the not inspired script. the story moved in Africa is not the worst idea but, unfortunately, it remains only an idea. the large error is the absence of tension. all seems be an old story well known. so, the work is only sketch, the script - fragile suggestion, the acting - surrogate. another adaptation. not significant but good occasion to remind the art of few real good actors, in this case only shadows of a mediocre script.
