When I was in my early teens, I had shifted my attention from Nancy Drew mysteries to those novels written kwa Agatha Christie. And I have not stopped since. I confess that this shift in kusoma material was the result of seeing the 1978 movie, "DEATH ON THE NILE", for the first time. Properly hooked on Christie's works, I focused my attention on her 1934 novel, "Murder in Three Acts", also known as "Three Act Tragedy".
Hi guys, since I upendo Poirot and Miss Marple, I will be uandishi a review on the series version because I had only seen bits of the 1980 version with Elizabeth Taylor (RIP) in it.
The character of marina Gregg was a tragic one, because she had German Measles while pregnant prior to the events of the story. Her American husband tried his best to console her not to think back of the past, until Heather Badcock open up old wounds to her and the latter is dead of poisoning later on!
"MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS" (1974) Review
Whenever the topic of Agatha Christie novels pop up, many critics and mashabiki seem to rate her 1934 novel, "Murder on the Orient Express" as among her best work. This stellar opinion seemed to have extended to the 1974 movie adaptation. After all, the film did receive six Academy Award nominations and won one. Is "MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS" the best adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Is it my favorite? Hmmm . . . I will get to that later.
When it came to the televisheni adaptations of Agatha Christie’s Jane Marple novels, I used to stick with those that featured the late Joan Hickson as the elderly sleuth. However, my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to watch a movie that starred Geraldine McEwan as Miss Jane Marple. And this movie is the 2007 adaptation of Christie’s 1944 novel called "Towards Zero".
The adaptation of Christie’s novel has drawn a good deal of criticism from purists. First of all, the novel is not a Jane Marple mystery....
This 2004 adaptation of Agatha Christie’s 1937 novel, "Death on the Nile", was the sekunde to be adapted for the screen. In the case of this movie, it aired as a 90-minute presentation on the long-running televisheni series, "Agatha Christie’s POIROT".
Like the novel and the 1978 movie, "DEATH ON THE NILE" centered around Hercule Poirot’s investigation of the murder of an Anglo-American heiress named Linnet Ridgeway. Linnet had stolen the affections of her best friend’s fiancé and married him. When the newly married couple...
Ever since the release of the BBC hivi karibuni adaptation of Agatha Christie’s 1939 novel, "And Then There Were None" televisheni viewers and critics have been praising the production for being a faithful adaptation. In fact these critics and mashabiki have been in such rapture over the production that some of them have failed to noticed that the three-part miniseries was not completely faithful. As long as the production followed Christie’s original ending, they were satisfied.
Agatha Christie's 1938 novel, "Appointment With Death" has proven to be a problem over the past 75 years au so. If I must be honest, it is not a great novel. Considering that if featured the topic of emotional abuse, it had the potential to be great. But I feel that Christie never achieved what could have been a memorable and haunting tale.
The novel also produced adaptations in the form of a 1945 stage play, a 2008 televisheni movie and a 1988 theatrical release. Of the three adaptations, the 1988 film,...
Anyone who has read Agatha Christie's 1925 novel, "The Secret of Chimneys", will be disappointed kwa the 2010 televisheni adaptation that stars Julia McKenzie as Miss Jane Marple. The televisheni movie bears little resemblance to the novel. But that does not mean one should completely dismiss the movie.
Although a long time shabiki of Christie's novels, I have never read "The Secret of Chimneys". Familiar with many of the author's novels, I knew that the former was not one that featured Jane Marple. I did not care. I...
Plot: A group of people is lured into coming to an island under different pretexts. All have been complicit in the death(s) of other human beings but either escaped justice au committed an act that was not subject to legal sanction. The guests and servants are charged with their respective crimes kwa a gramophone recording after chajio, chakula cha jioni the first night and informed that they have been brought to the island to pay for their actions and one kwa one are starting to die in a manner that seems to parallel the ten deaths in the nursery rhyme.
Agatha Christie is one of the BEST writters in a world. I recently bought a hundred of her vitabu and i decide it to read them all. She had such a imagination and she knew how to create a good story. From all the vitabu i have read, my mind is been blown away. She rocks!!!
