"PERIL AT END HOUSE" (1990) Review

I just realized something. I have never read Agatha Christie's 1932 novel, "Peril at End House". I find this ironic, considering that I have seen the 1990 Televisione movie adaptation of this novel at least three o four times. One of these days, I will get around to Leggere Christie's novel and comparing it to the Televisione adaptation. Right now, I am going to focus on the latter.

Directed da Renny Rye and adapted da Clive Exton, "PERIL AT END HOUSE" is the first full-length Televisione movie aired on "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT". It is also about Belgian-born...

"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...

"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...

"DUMB WITNESS" (1996) Review

There is a belief among fan of the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" series that the episodes and Televisione Film that aired between 1989 and 2001 - ones that featured Arthur Hastings, Chief Inspector Japp and Miss limone - were più faithful adaptations of Agatha Christie's novels that the più recente ones that have aired since 2003. I do not know if I agree with this opinion, especially after viewing the 1996 Televisione movie, "DUMB WITNESS".

Screenwriter Douglas Watkinson's script più o less remained faithful to the 1937 novel's main narrative. Surrounded da grasping...
