Living quietly in the small village of King's Abbot, sleuth Hercule Poirot becomes involved in the murder of successful industrialist Roger Ackroyd. The number of potential killers is almost as great as the population of the village itself. As Poirot investigates he sees that there might be a connection to the suicide of a local woman, and the death the previous year of her husband.Written by

When the doctor's sister is seen in the opening scenes she has on a blouse with intricate cutwork near the neck. The blouse is cream color and the cutwork a dark brown. The work is so beautiful it's memorable. In another Christie/Suchet episode, Cat Among the Pigeons, the headmistress of the school is shown wearing the same blouse. See more »

If you have read the book this movie will disappoint you.
Agatha Christie is a Master of Mystery and her writings are classic. "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" is one of her best and should have been a great movie. However, this movie bears very little resemblance to the book, especially at the end. I suppose the writers thought her ending would be too tame for today's audiences. Just once I wish someone would make an Agatha Christie movie that is faithful to her writing
