I'm reading AC in order of publication and I haven't come to this one yet. Nice poster, though.
A nice poster, though I would never cast Ustinov as Poirot!
Prashant: Yes, a better poster than the film, I'm afraid.
Mark, I know! But at least he was personable in the part.
I'll put this film on my list even though it may not be stellar. That's okay.The French title is nicer,yes.
Kathy: You may like it more than I did. I'm only one person's opinion after all. :)
However, an important movie critic's opinion so it holds weight.I always add the movie titles to my lists, but the library often doesn't have older movies (or books these days either!).
I read the book not too long ago, but I haven't seen the Peter Ustinov version. I tend to like the 70s Poirot films because of the casting. It's fun to see so many well-known actors in one film.Yeah, I didn't think the book was that great, either. I got a bit angry with it because I don't like it when mystery authors withhold relevant information from the reader. It makes me feel really frustrated!
Your comment will appear after I take a look.
