"THE MYSTERY OF THE BLUE TRAIN" (2005) Review

Although considered one of her most famous novels, 1934’s "Murder on the Orient Express" was not the first of Christie’s novels that featured a famous luxury train as a setting. The anno 1928 saw the publication of another novel called "The Mystery of the Blue Train", which told the story of a brutal murder aboard the famous Blue Train.

This story had its origins in Christie’s 1922 novella, "The Plymouth Express", which told the story of the murder of an Australian heiress. Christie took that story and expanded it into a full-length novel,...

"MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA" (2001) Review

One can categorize the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" Televisione Film into two categories. The ones made between 1989 and 2001, featured the supporting characters Captain Arthur Hasting, Miss limone (Hercule Poirot), and Chief Inspector Japp. The ones made post-2001 sporadically featured the mystery writer, Adriande Oliver. The very last Televisione movie that featured Poirot's close friend, Hastings, turned out to be 2001's "MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA".

Based upon Agatha Christie's 1936 novel, "MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA" told of Hercule Poirot's investigation into the...

"MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS" (2010) Review

After being on the air for nearly two decades, "Agatha Christie’s POIROT" decided to air its own version of the mystery writer’s 1934 novel, "Murder on the Orient Express". Although there have been two other well known adaptations of the novel – the famous 1974 movie that starred Albert Finney and the 2001 teleplay that starred Alfred Molina. But this latest version starred David Suchet (considered da many to be the ultimate Hercule Poirot) in the starring role.

Directed da Philip Martin and written da Stewart Harcourt, "MURDER ON THE ORIENT...

"MRS. McGINTY'S DEAD" (2008) Review

Since it first aired on television, I must admit that I have paid scant attention to "MRS. McGINTY'S DEAD", ITV's 2008 adaptation of Agatha Christie's 1952 novel. I find this amazing, since the novel has always been a preferito of mine. I am not claiming that the 2008 movie is terrible. I was simply distracted da other matters during my last two viewings. This third viewing proved to be the Streghe#The power of three and I finally was able to ascertain the movie's quality.

Unlike its literary source, "MRS. McGINTY'S DEAD" was not set in the early 1950s. Because the television...

"THIRD GIRL" (2008) Review

Looking back on her career, I suspect that Agatha Christie was not at the superiore, in alto of her game as a novelist during the last decade-and-a-half of her life. There were a handful of novels during the period of 1960-1976 that I found unique. However, her 1966 novel, "Third Girl" was not one of them.

I take that back. I did find "Third Girl" rather unique . . . to a certain extent. I thought Christie did a pretty good job in re-capturing the Swinging Sixties atmosphere in her novel. Unfortunately, her streak of conservatism and a too complex plot made it difficult for me to...

"LORD EDGEWARE DIES" (2000) Review

The worlds of Britain's upper-crust and artists mingled in Agatha Christie's 1933 novel called "Lord Edgeware Dies aka Thirteen at Dinner". There have been at least three movie and one radio adaptations of the novel in the past seven to eight decades. The most recente was a 100 minuto Televisione adaptation that aired in 2000 on the ITV series, "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT".

In "LORD EDGEWARE DIES", Belgian-born detective Hercule Poirot is approached da celebrated stage actress, Jane Wilkinson aka Baroness Edgeware, to approach her rather unpleasant husband on the...
