The framed copy of 'The Daily Sketch' in Agatha's study makes reference to Henry Segrave: famous racing driver and land speeds record holder. Segrave was a contemporary of Agatha Christie and like her husband Archie, a member of the Suicide Club (the name given to Royal Flying Corps pilots during WW1). See more »
A simply wonderful crime film that deserves watching and recommending to everyone. This should be watched as a Double Bill with the recent Murder On The Orient Express. The characters are never just one note as the writers and actors flesh out each part with real sparks of life. Agatha has some wonderful little put downs for the condescending men that she meet throughout the film, very much like Kenneth Branagh's film the dialogue is of the period and not modernised. The direction does look at the period with a modern eye, too how women where and are still treated by men and even other women.
By the way i'm a man, make of that what you will. This film was a hoot to watch and a pleasure to recommend.
