Trivia

Terence Edmond's appearance as Sergeant Bacon partly capitalized on his then-recent rôle in Z Cars (1962), where his Policeman character Police Constable Sweet had been shockingly killed off. See more »

Goofs

The brisk Dr Crump says that the police are "just across the road" from the Trust's meeting. Although this seems incorrect as the County Constabulary HQ is sited next door to Milchester House where the meeting took place, there is actually a road between the two buildings. It is, however, more likely to be described as a lane than a road. See more »

Quotes

Captain Rhumstone: [Unhappily noticing Miss Marple's dated naval attire as she boards his ship for the first time] Look at it. Will you look at it! Reefer jacket, brass buttons, tricorn hat. Who does she think she is, Neptune's mother?

Admiral Marple
14 February 2000 | by BILLYBOY-10See all my reviews

Seems old Follie Hardwick gets snuffed out after a visit to the HMS Battledorn, a old wreck used to rehibilitate wayward boys. That leaves another old wreck, Jane Marple to personally investigate the shennanigans aboard ship, and so she does much to the shagrin of all aboard including the eventual murder. This is great fun and Dame Rutherford is at her peak. I think its the best of the four Christie films in this series, altho they are all great.
