The anonymous narrator here goes out of his way . . .
17 June 2017 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . to repeatedly emphasize that the Unbilled star of Agatha Christie's pot boiler movie adaptation for DEATH ON THE NILE is the Karnak, a paddle-wheeler riverboat built in Scotland about 1901, falling into disrepair under the sweltering Egyptian sun before being rebuilt by the movie crew on location, and then reproduced "rivet for rivet" in Pinewood Studio, England. Ah, those simpler times of Grandpa's 1900s Yesteryear, when there were NO knife-wielding terrorists on London Bridge, NO suicide bombers at Beatles concerts, and NO high-rise apartment buildings burning to the ground. During that Backward Century, people were free to concern themselves with "rivet for rivet" riverboat reproductions, because Red Commie KGB Chief Vlad "The Mad Russian" Putin had not yet co-opted the American Rich People Party, installed a serial finger-rapist Game Show Host as his White House Puppet, and ordered his minions in the U.S. Congress to pass an Anti-Health Care Bill IN TOTAL SECRECY stripping the Life Support away from more than 24 million U.S. Citizens--therefore murdering untold thousands--in order to give an $800 million tax break to American AND RU$$IAN Fat Cat One Per Center Oligarchs whose wealth has been Comingled by the Money-Laundering Trump\Kushner Crime Syndicate!
