Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

Often titled And Then There Were None for TV, and complete with a hugely irritating "guess-the-killer" break, this is the second film version of Agatha Christie's ever-popular whodunnit. Co-writer Harry Alan Towers enjoyed the experience so much that he went on to make the picture twice more in 1975 and 1989. It's hard to think of Dame Agatha as the originator of the serial killer thriller, but that's essentially what this ingenious mystery is. The cast of fading British stars doesn't seem particularly enthralled, while George Pollock (who directed the Margaret Rutherford Miss Marple series) might have injected the film with a little more enthusiasm.
