"THE MURDER OF ROGER ACKROYD" (2000) Review

As many Fans of Agatha Christie are aware, one of her most highly acclaimed and controversial novels is "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd". I had checked the Internet to see how many adaptations had been made from well-regarded tale. I was surprised to learn there were at least seven adaptations, considering its difficult plot twist. The third to the last adaptation proved to be the last adaptation was the 103-minute Fernsehen movie that aired on ITV's "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" in 2000.

"THE MURDER OF ROGER ACKROYD" seemed like your typical Christie novel....

Hi guys, since I Liebe Poirot and Miss Marple, I will be Schreiben a review on the series version because I had only seen bits of the 1980 version with Elizabeth Taylor (RIP) in it.

The Characters

The character of yachthafen, marina Gregg was a tragic one, because she had German Measles while pregnant prior to the events of the story. Her American husband tried his best to console her not to think back of the past, until Heather Badcock open up old wounds to her and the latter is dead of poisoning later on!
Although she doesn't have much screen-time due to an injured leg occurred in this episode, Miss Marple...

"THE MIRROR CRACK'D" (1980) Review

As far as I know, Guy Hamilton is the only director who has helmed two movie adaptations of Agatha Christie novels. The 1982 movie, "EVIL UNDER THE SUN" was the Sekunde adaptation. The first was his 1980 adaptation of Christie's 1962 novel, "The Mirror Crack'd From Side to Side".

A big Hollywood production has arrived at St. Mary's Mead, the Home of Miss Jane Marple, to film a costume movie about Mary, Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth I of England, starring two Hollywood stars - yachthafen, marina Gregg and Lola Brewster. The two Schauspielerinnen are rivals who despise each...

"TOWARDS ZERO" (2007) Review

When it came to the Fernsehen adaptations of Agatha Christie’s Jane Marple novels, I used to stick with those that featured the late Joan Hickson as the elderly sleuth. However, my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to watch a movie that starred Geraldine McEwan as Miss Jane Marple. And this movie is the 2007 adaptation of Christie’s 1944 novel called "Towards Zero".

The adaptation of Christie’s novel has drawn a good deal of criticism from purists. First of all, the novel is not a Jane Marple mystery. Instead, the main investigator in "Towards Zero"...

"THE MOVING FINGER" (1942) Book Review

Published in 1942, "THE MOVING FINGER" is an Agatha Christie murder mystery about a small English town rocked Von a series of poison pen letters that lead to suicide and murder. This particular novel featured the elderly Jane Marple as the story’s chief detective, despite the fact that the character only has a minor role.

"THE BODY IN THE LIBRARY" (2004) Review

I might as well say it. Agatha Christie's 1942 novel, "The Body in the Library" has never been a particularly Favorit of mine. Nor have I ever been that fond of the 1984 Fernsehen adaptation that starred Joan Hickson. So, when ITV aired another adaptation of the novel, I was not that eager to watch it. But I did.

"THE BODY IN THE LIBRARY" proved to be a slightly complicated tale that begins with the discovery of a dead body in the bibliothek of Gossington Hall, the Home of Colonel Arthur and Dolly Bantry. The body turns out to be a peroxide blonde in her...
