One of the best who done its

Not only is this one of the best who done its, all of the characters depictions were excellent. I felt I was there interacting with them. Loved Cole Porter's score :-) But if he had been alive, he would have highly approved of it. I have the Laser of it, and if the DVD ever comes out I'll get it. I'll give it a 10 +, but there isn't any, so a 10 will have to do. I've named my black kitty Arlene, and my tiger kitty Daphne. By all means rent it or buy it; it's the greatest!

Good murder mystery

Hercule Poirot (Peter Ustinov) is vacationing at a resort on a beautiful island. A very rich and evil woman (Diana Rigg) is murdered. The owner of the resort (Maggie Smith) hires Poirot to find the killer. This was made because "Death on the Nile" was such a big hit. For some reason this bombed quickly at the box office. I can't see why--it's no classic but it's actually well-done on beautiful locations with a good cast. Ustinov is just perfect as Poirot and the rest of the big name cast (among them...Roddy McDowell, Sylvia Miles, James Mason) do well. Nicholas Clay especially stands out...and wears a VERY tight bathing suit through most of the movie. The script is well-written with some hysterically catty dialogue between Rigg and Smith. There's also some great Cole Porter songs on the soundtrack and the costumes are just breath-taking (especially on Rigg). Not as good as "Death..." but fun and enjoyable. Worth catching.

Best Ustinov Poirot

Worthwile for Maggie Smith and Diana Rigg although I wish the reviewer who commented that Jane Birken played Diana Riggs' step daughter had got their facts right after taking the time to write the review. She played the female accomplace of the murderer played by Nicholas Clay. It was also filmed on the Spanish Islands not the Greek Islands. Just had to put the record straight.
