The Agatha Christie Miss Marple Movie Collection
Veteran British actress Margaret Rutherford shines as Christie's sly spinster sleuth, Miss Jane Marple, in four light-hearted whodunits. Unable to convince authorities that she witnessed a murder on a passing train, Rutherford goes undercover as a maid to catch the culprit, in "Murder She Said" (1961), with Arthur Kennedy, Muriel Pavlow, and Stringer Davis in his series role of Mr. Stringer. A wealthy old man's mysterious death leads the crimesolver to strange doings at a tony equestrian club, in "Murder At The Gallop" (1963), co-starring Robert Morley and Flora Robson. Next, "Murder Ahoy" (1964) finds Rutherford all at sea--literally--to track down the killer on board a ship; Lionel Jeffries co-stars. Then, juror Rutherford is convinced a murder suspect is innocent and, after a mistrial, joins a theatrical troupe to find the real criminal, in "Murder Most Foul" (1964), with Ron Moody and Dennis Price. 5 3/4 hrs. total on four discs. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital mono, French Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, Spanish, French; theatrical trailers.
