strangler on a train
16 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

IMHO,an improvement on Georges Pollock's version ("murder she said" ,1962)starring Margaret Rutherford.The place where the desirable mansion is located is called "Rutherford" ,perhaps a tribute to McEwan 's predecessor.

Directing is much less static than Pollock's ,and the two trains belting in the dark and blue night is an exciting scene;the final scene is a very good idea as Miss Marple summons her suspects on the same train .

it's too bad Jenny Agutter had to die in the very first sequence;Geraldine Ewan ,Ben Daniels and David Warner are the stand-outs of a stellar cast ;the screenwriter succeeds in making numerous characters interesting ,which is the main difficulty is Mrs Christie's brilliant murder mysteries.
