Did You Know?


In the opening minutes, as Miss Marple stares in wonderment at the lobby of Bertram's Hotel, the manager is on the phone and says, "Uh, no, I'm afraid Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today." The line is from the 1934 Cole Porter song "Miss Otis Regrets" performed by many artists including Ella Fitzgerald and 'Nat 'King' Cole', and more recently by Bette Midler on the final episode of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962).

Oh dear
20 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

The Marple series continues like an incorrigibly naughty child. The producers are determined to misuse -- no, to trample on -- the original books whose titles they place at the beginning of their films. Their regular agenda seems to include the following: (a) Make everything as lurid as possible (b) set it in the early fifties, but force a trendy ethos upon the proceedings and (c) bring in lesbianism if at all possible. They did it all in this episode. It is a perfect textbook example of all that is wrong with the series.

That said, I have to admit that the original novel and the Hickson version of it are not particularly scintillating. However, this was not the way to liven it up.

Agatha Christie must be spinning in her grave at something close to the speed of light by now.
