When the valuable painting at the center of the intrigue was first introduced it appeared that the picture wasn't very large. However when Stringer sets off for London to have it appraised, it looked like it grew to twice the size. See more »
Miss Marple, I would deem it an honour if you'd at least stay the day and be my guest at the hunt.
Miss Jane Marple:
I'm very sorry, Mr. Enderby, but I disapprove of blood sports.

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.
