Trivia

In this TV-movie, Christie attempts to sell a manuscript to avoid taxes. In reality, she admitted to slowing her output to one book a year, and would sometimes gift the royalties of her works to family members. For tax reasons she set up a private company in 1955, Agatha Christie Limited. Additionally, references to high taxes are often found in her post-war novels. See more »

This is an Agatha Christie story?
25 November 2020 | by scottibailey-997-291611See all my reviews

This is an Agatha Christie story. Must be one of her less favourite ones. It's a collection of highly unlikely characters brought together in a contrived situation with a rather silly storyline. Overall there was little in the way of real suspense, just lots of dead bodies (we have all seen those). The characters were shallow and of little interest although the performances of some actors were fair enough; the rest of the day players were forgettable.
