Goofs

After the first murder, when we see Mr. Owen enter the dining room in the middle of the night and remove the first of the ten china figures (leaving nine), the dining table is clean and set up for breakfast. However, later, Rogers says that he noticed there were only nine figures on the table while he was cleaning up the dining room. See more »

Alternate Versions

The television print includes a brief interlude right after Vera and Rogers discover there are only seven Nigger statuettes left after General Macarthur's murder. This was done for a separate two night broadcast, with an inter-title simply stating "Agatha Christie's Ten Little Niggers, part two." Curiously, this is the version that was released on home video.

As faithful as a dog
25 December 2005 | by cluedokid25See all my reviews

Amazing! AllI can say is amazing! The best movie adaptation yet! I liked the realistic reactions rather than the wise cracks from older versions. Vera was played to perfection right down to the hanging and the Judge, all I can say is brilliant. I'm glad they played out the ending there versions were afraid to do, and the setting is just perfect to the way Christie described it! I'm also happy on the way they did the death scenes in that manor. Aside from liking Vera's breakdown, I was equally amazed by Miss Brents break down to her smashing her bible through the window! The score was just plain creepy! My only grip is the horrible subtitles, that look like they were written by some 4-year old! Plus they were completely off. Like the guy would speak and seconds later, the words would prompt on. Next time I'm watching it subtitle less, after all, it was so close to the book I felt like I didn't even need the subtitles! Overall I give it 9 out of 10 N i g g e rs!
