Review

Our Score
Robert Morley and Flora Robson add a touch of class to the list of suspects as Miss Marple investigates the murder of a rich recluse in this mystery. While detective Charles Tingwell scratches his head in bewilderment, Miss Marple lures the killer into a trap using herself as bait. Director George Pollock effortlessly blends clues and comedy in Margaret Rutherford's second outing as the doyenne of St Mary Mead, but the most striking thing about this lively whodunnit is that it was inspired by the novel After the Funeral, in which the case was actually solved by Hercule Poirot!

Summary

Miss Marple focuses her powers of deduction on the case of an elderly and wealthy recluse apparently frightened to death by a cat. But the inquisitive spinster's suspicions are aroused when she learns four of the dead man's relatives stand to benefit from his demise. Mystery, starring Margaret Rutherford, Flora Robson, Robert Morley, Stringer Davis and Charles Tingwell.
