Very Good
17 December 2002 | by BritishFilms1See all my reviews

Based on Agatha Christie's book "After the Funearl", this murder mystery is about a rich old man who is murdered and Miss Marple suspects the family members must have done it for his money, but then, another family member is killed as well.

Margaret Rutherford gives an excellent performance as Miss Marple and she is supported by Robert Morley, as the hotel owner and horse rider, who gives just as good a performance as Margaret Rutherford and Flora Robson as the spinster and companion of the dead woman.

10/10
