Trivia

The original script was much more faithful to the original Agatha Christie novel with the setting on an island and the original grim conclusion of the book. However, producer Harry Alan Towers changed it at the last second when he realized that it would be cheaper to shoot in the African outback and that the novel's ending is less marketable than Christie's happier resolution from the play version of the story.

Goofs

When the survivors are burying the first victim, one of them comments that they "didn't even know" the person's name. However, during the accusation scene, all ten characters are present and all ten characters' full names are used. See more »

Pure Poerty!
24 October 1999 | by GoriotSee all my reviews

Ten Little Indians is pure poetry! I loved it...The cast is A-class. Donald Pleasence, Brenda Vaccaro, Paul L. Smith and Yehuda Efroni as Dr. Werner is superb. I was compelled after viewing this film to go on a Murder mystery weekend...Rent this film out! I loved it...Happy veiwing.
