Synopsis

A collection of Agatha Christie murder mysteries. 'Murder on the Orient Express' (1974) stars Albert Finney as Hercule Poirot. Heading into heavy weather, the Orient Express gets stuck in the snow and overnight one of the passengers - the millionaire Ratchett - is repeatedly stabbed to death. Who did it? Luckily Poirot is on hand to find out. In 'Death on the Nile' (1978) Peter Ustinov stars as Poirot. When a rich heiress is murdered aboard a steamship travelling down the Nile, Poirot discovers that almost all the passengers had a reason to kill her. Will he be able to locate the true culprit before the ship reaches port? In 'The Mirror Crack'd' (1980) excitement runs high when the feuding film stars Marina Rudd (Elizabeth Taylor) and Lola Brewster (Kim Novak) arrive in the sleepy English village of St Mary Mead, ready to begin work on a movie about Elizabeth I and Lady Jane Grey. But the experience quickly turns sour when an innocent bystander drops dead at a party after drinking a poisoned cocktail. Everyone assumes the drink was intended for Marina, but local resident Miss Marple (Angela Lansbury) has her doubts and begins to investigate. Finally in 'Evil Under the Sun' (1982) Peter Ustinov once again stars as Hercule Poirot. The Belgian detective solves a murder in a resort hotel. The film boasts an all-star cast, a Cole Porter score and a script by Anthony Schaffer.
