Did You Know?

Trivia

In recent years, it has come to light that much of Christie's plot appears to have been inspired by a little known 1930 play by Owen Davis entitled The Ninth Guest, which utilized the same framework of people being brought together by an unknown host who proceeds to kill them one by one. Columbia Pictures' atmospheric film version of The Ninth Guest (1934) has never been released on home video, but is now in the public domain and can be found on eBay and iOffer. See more »

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 »

Quotes

Miss Emily Caroline Brent: This house is full of termites.
Ethel Rogers - Maid: It is impossible, Miss Brent.
Miss Emily Caroline Brent: That's what is always said, and then nothing can be done.

...As Dark and Grim as Ms. Christie Intended!!!
30 June 2003 | by marseilletarotSee all my reviews

ahh.....After a difficult search, I managed to find a video copy (with subtitles) of the film described above. The other reviewer was the reason I was prompted to find this film. It is indeed the best adaptation of A. Christie's classic suspense thriller. The most gratifying thing is being able to see everybody end up exactly where they are supposed to be in the book. After all, it is called, "And Then There Were None," not called, "And Then There Were Two." Acting, direction, and photography are exquisite. Keep eyes on auction sites for people who have copies of this one....it IS out there somewhere!!
