Storyline

Live television presentation of Agatha Christie's famous work "Ten Little Indians". A group of amoral people are invited to an isolated island mansion. Upon arriving, a recorded phonograph message accuses them of certain crimes in which they could not be touched by the law. After one dies from poison, another from an overdose of sleeping pills, a third from being struck/falling into a fire, and a fourth from stabbing, (all according to the ten little Indians nursery rhyme) the remaining number realize the killer is among those present. In the desperate game to survive, the remaining number try to figure out who the killer is, before they are murdered. Who will be next? Written by John Tristan <johnt3107@yahoo.com>

NOT BAD.....A MUST FOR FANS OF THE STORY
13 July 2003 | by (westminster, CA) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this one, and it moves along quite nicely. Yes, it is only an hour long, but it is cohesive and well-done. I have seen every version save for the 1949 TV version, and I must say that this is one of the better ones. My ranking would probably go 1.Desyat Negrityat, 2.And Then There Were None, 3.Ten Little Indians (1959), 4.Ten Little Indians (1966), 5.Ten Little Indians (1989), 6.Ten Little Indians (1975). You can find a copy from "Movies Unlimited." It's an old TV print, but it's not so bad. I am keeping my fingers crossed for a digital remaster one day.
