Solid faithful adaption of one of Miss Marple's vacation mysteries, thishasa decent cast (for a tv movie) and an okay storyline. Warning: BarnardHughes as a grouchy old millionaire will soon start to irritate the morehenags and grumbles. The killer should have offed him in the first 5minutes.Helen H...
Cable TV here has just shown the two versions back to back. Iprefer this one as the more 'solid and faithful' even though theBritish version has the great Joan Hickson and a strongsupporting cast. This version has the great merit of sticking to thestory with no fancy touches (or overacting). It's be...
Helen Hayes played Miss Marple, Agatha Christie's second most famoussleuth (after Hercule Poirot, of course), only two times. Although theactress is American and the character is English, Hayes is quitedelightful in the role - witty, humane and still youthful in spirit.The supporting cast of "A Cari...
This is a pretty poorly made TV movie typical of the early 80s, with anoverly syrupy score and bland cinematography and awful acting by everyoneunder the age of 60. So it can be taken as proof of Agatha Christie'sgenius that a straightforward telling of one of her stories is prettyenjoyable even wh...
I came across an old video of this TV movie and watched it for thefirst time in about fifteen years. It is hopelessly trapped in 80s TVsoap land with big hair and bright costumes and a 'steel band'soundtrack - its a bit like Christie meets Fantasy Island! Where doesHelen Hayes' Miss Marple come from...
I did like this adaptation on the whole, but if I were to be honest, Iprefer the Joan Hickson version, which I found more somewhat betterpaced and more stylish. But I will say it is a marginal improvement onthe Helen Hayes version of They Do It With Mirrors. Overall, this is apleasant enough time fi...
Those are the two glaring complaints I have about A CARIBBEAN MYSTERY,a made for TV movie which dawdles on for a long time before getting tothe point of a series of murders committed at a vacation resort.Helen Hayes, her American accent intact, still makes a passable MissMarple even when she utters ...
Helen Hayes just doesn't cut it.Rather than going the whole hog and playing Miss Marple as an American,sheplays her as an Englishwoman. This is a mistake,since her accent veersfromdeep south of USA to England via Ireland. In short, her accent is all overthe place.Her lines are also peppered with Am...
