Storyline

While consoling her recently widowed friend Marjorie, Miss Marple crosses paths with the handsome Mike Rogers, a young worker with a penchant for daydreaming about his future, more specifically about the perfect house he would live in, built on the eerily beautiful Gypsy's Acre. When Mike meets and marries the ethereal American heiress Ellie Goodman, his luck changes, and with the help of his old friend and rising architect Robbie Hayman, Mike's dream house is finally built, despite the repeated warnings from Esther Lee, a local gypsy, that Gypsy's Acre is cursed ground. Miss Marple, however, senses that danger really is near at hand, especially when frightening incidents plague Mike and Ellie, culminating in an injury that leads to the arrival of Ellie's mysterious Swedish friend, Greta.

Crazy Credits

Watch the credits and you'll see some seemingly random red letters appear in the names of the crew. These letters spell out "Auguries of Innocence," a poem written by William Blake. Lines of this poem are spoken by Mrs. Lee and Miss Marple: "Every Night & every Morn Some to Misery are Born Every Morn and every Night Some are Born to sweet delight Some are Born to sweet delight Some are Born to Endless Night " See more »

A beguiling book, why add Miss Marple?
19 January 2021 | by louisemimnagh-73043See all my reviews

It's a really good slow burner of a book but this doesn't capture much of the atmosphere or of that. Miss Marple is crow-barred in, completely unnecessary & very forced. The character of Robbie doesn't make sense, the original would have been much better. I can see why they did this from the point of brevity but it's just strange. This would make a great movie but this isn't a Miss Marple & shouldn't have been.
