Storyline

Poirot is visited by a distraught girl, Norma Restarick, who fears she may have killed someone but runs away, telling him that he's too old rather than explaining further. By coincidence, Poirot's friend Ariadne Oliver lives in the same apartment block as Norma and her two roommates and recently went to their party, where Norma was distressed when she was offered ice cream. Norma's ex-nanny, Miss Lavinia Seagram, an alcoholic, also lived in the block but was recently found dead, with the verdict being suicide. Ariadne is unconvinced and searches the nanny's apartment, finding a clue which she puts in her handbag. Soon afterward she is attacked and the bag and its contents are stolen. Poirot visits the Restarick family home in the country, owned by Norma's great-uncle, Sir Roderick, an elderly and half-blind man who is dependent upon Sonia, his young personal assistant (who may well be a gold-digger).

Thank goodness Wanamaker is in this
25 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the second time I've watched this show and both times my reaction has been "Boy, this sure is a lot better than the book." It has been too many decades for me to remember why I disliked the book so, but I do remember much disliking it, perhaps because it was set in the 1960s. Of course, the film doesn't have that problem. It has been a couple of weeks since I saw this and the performance I most remember is Wanamaker's - this show really allowed her to shine as Mrs. Oliver. Peter Bowles also does a nice job as the essentially uncaring great uncle. The rest of the supporting cast is okay but not particularly memorable nor is the storyline itself. One certainly feels terribly sorry for Norma Restarick but she is not an especially engaging character. As usual with these Poirot films, I thought production values good and especially enjoyed the sets and costumes. But the real reason to watch this is Zoë Wanamaker.
