Large parts of the dialogue are lifted, whole and entire, from the original version - but not all of them. In the original, Blore advises Vera to go to her room and stay there, then later scolds her for not doing so. In this version, the second half of their exchange is repeated - but the first half isn't. So when Blore yells, "Ms. Clyde! I told you to stay in your room!", he is referencing a conversation that didn't happen. See more »
The Locale,Direction and Updating of the classic Agatha Christie tale have one by one destroyed this adaptation of the novel.
The first version of the book,1945's And Then There Were None was a classic,the 1966 adaptation was of passing interest...even the 1989 version had it moments but this 1975 version is a botched job. Not only is the cast turning in "take the money and run" performances,they are in the wrong roles,this makes the killer obvious from the beginnig of the investigation. And one side note...the 1945 film retained the character of religous fanatic Emily Brent portrayed perfectly by Judith Anderson,each subsequent version has cut this wonderful role,replacing her with a rather uninteresting movie star (played dreadfully in this version by Stéphane Audran).
My advice: avoid this film. Read the book,then watch the 1945 version.
