One of the rare, gratifying occasions when a mediocre book is transformed byexperts into a first-rate, memorable movie. "Endless Night" was one of Agatha Christie's last novels--also one of herleast satisfying. A macabre romance about a wealthy young American heiress(the glorious Hayley Mills in a ...
Endless Night is one of those movies that is hugely flawed, and yet itsticks in the mind unlike many more polished movies. Extremely slow pacedfor much of it's length and with several sequences that feel almostunnecessary, and even a few which just seem wierd, the film than delivers atrue knock out ...
I don't agree at all with the poor reviews of this movie. I first saw thismovie years ago and it stayed in my mind and finally I had the pleasure offinding it on dvd so I ordered it. It's probably my favourite dvd I havesofar. It's a low-budget movie but yet it's a movie with a lot of class. Theacto...
I won't say it's a bad film, but I have to believe the liberties takenwiththe adaptation of the story go well beyond the nudity and modern setting.(I will say that the house with the remote-controlled indoor swimming poolin the living room was a bit over the top.)I will confess that I did not guess ...
British Lion made some great films: Don't Look Now and The Wicker Manleap to mind immediately. Great cult films that pack a real punch,dealing with weird subject matter and huge twisting plots.Endless Night was made by British Lion at around the same time as thesebetter-known films; accordingly, it'...
The is a film that has always stuck in my mind. I've just watched itagain(after picking it up on video for $1.95!) It has a Hitchcock flavour aboutit so anyone expecting a "Murder on the Orient Express" type mystery mightbe disappointed.It's not a horror movie either (as the picture on the DVD seem...
The last film made by the illustrious Launder & Gilliat team is apsycho-thriller that desperately wants to be praised as "Hitchcockian"and even recruits Bernard Herrmann, Hitch's favourite composer, towrite the score. Perhaps the Hitchcock film it most resembles, however,is "Frenzy" – both seem...
How old was Agatha Christie when she wrote this? Pushing 70? She waspretty old, about my age, and that might account for the tragicemotional tonus of this story.You wouldn't know this was a Christie story if it weren't soadvertised. True, there are some of the usual themes -- British classdistinctio...
Around 45 years ago, when I was just a young lad, Hayley Mills was myfavorite actress, and her 1962 film "In Search of the Castaways" was myfavorite film, but between this and that, I don't think I've seenHayley in anything since 1965's "That Darn Cat." How nice, then, to seeher, the other night, at...
I love this film and have watched it many times. The idea at the heartof the film is very haunting: it is encapsulated in the words of theSwedish architect who says, at one point, "You should have went theother way". I think there are some genuine chills in this film,particularly the scene where Mic...
Endless Night is a very fine, interesting, and unusual film-just likethe novel on which it was based. It seems amazing that thisunder-appreciated film, which follows Christie's novel closely, wasnever released theatrically in the U.S.Acting is very good for the most part; Hayley Mills is good in aso...
I just watched this movie, I think for the first time, because I seem toremember seeing the "house" from an excerpt in another context. I reallyenjoyed it and watched it twice. Sure it's dated. It was done in theheyday of the seventies complete with crocheted dresses, orangefurnishings,and moog s...
I first saw this on BBC1 1985 Sat late film before close down and evenstill have it on Video.Its made on a budget from a period when we hadsome great low budget British Films.The Gipsies acre setting onBrighstone Down,Isle of Wight with Ellie dancing is magical and i'vevisited this area.Some wonderf...
True-blue Agatha Christie fans know better than anyone that the creatorof Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot did not always write crime-solvingprocedural. Endless Night, published in 1968, is a perfect example ofthe moody, psychological thriller Christie sometimes explored,particularly in the late years...
I just watched Julia McKenzie in the recent adaptation of the Christienovel, inserting Miss Marple where she was originally absent. I clickedon the IMDb and Amazon to learn more about the production and foundthat there had been a 1971 movie which hewed more closely to theoriginal. A purchase of a us...
Endless Night remains one of my favourite films and I watch my DVD copyat least twice a year.Having first viewed this marvellous (but apparently long forgotten)film back in 1973 (age 11), in the on- board cinema of a P&O cruiseliner, I loved it from the first moment I heard the wonderfullyatmospheri...
One tends to think of the works of Agatha Christie as being 'period'and therefore expect film adaptations of them to be correspondinglyelegant and Art Deco (Poirot) or cosy post war village (Miss Marple).Christie however wrote well into the early seventies pulling evenPoirot and (to a lesser extent)...
"Endless Night" may not as fun and exciting as other films based onAgatha Christie books, but it is more psychologically complex andartistically inventive than many of them. The emphasis here is not onthe twists and the red herrings (although there are certainly enough ofthem), but on the characters...
Christie's novels are poorly suited for the screen. The final scene justisn't a good cinematic device - and even ifthis scene works, it's hard to make the rest of the movie worth seeingmorethan once. "Endless Night" *is* suited for the screen and it's been welltransferred. It's a film rather than ...
Endless Night is from an Agatha Christie Miss Marple mystery and theobservant and neutral Miss Marple has been taken out of this filmadaption. The perpetrator is brought to justice by his ownpsychological defenses falling apart.This is one particular mystery in which I can say absolutely nothing ing...
I came to this having recently seen the slightly earlier, 'TwistedNerve' also starring Hayley mills and Hywel Bennett, directed by theBoultings and was expecting something more along the lines of a moretraditional thriller/horror. this, however, is a very different filmand if not as successful as it...
SPOILERS!!! I recommend watching this movie BEFORE reading spoilers or the book,due to unexpected twists & surprise events.The story and plot were quite exceptional which caught me completely bysurprise, twice. There is a haunting quality to this story. An unusualrole for Hayley Mills which draws yo...
I found this movie a trial to sit through. It is painfully slow, takes aneternity before anything of substance really happens and is packed full ofpretentious flashbacks, sounds and symbolism that soon becomeirritating.Hywell Bennet is all wrong as the lead and good though Hayley Mills is inthis sor...
I am a huge Agatha Christie fan, and Endless Night is no exception. Thebook is not quite the masterpiece I would deem as The Murder of RogerAckroyd, A Murder is Annoucned and especially And Then there were None,but it is very interesting and psychologically complex. This filmadaptation is every bit ...
A murder story by Agatha Christie, with Hayley Mills and Hywel Bennettwhich takes the William Blake poem, turns it into a chilling song, andputs a new slant on the old story of manipulation and jealousy. Thestory is adapted and directed by Sidney Gilliat.Hayley Mills was always a good actress as a c...
