  • In a word: AWFUL!

    Fans of Agatha Christie are advised to steer clear of this travesty. The story, as presented here, bears almost no resemblence to the original novel, and Poirot, as re-imagined by the screenwriters, is virtually unrecognizable. It's hard to believe that it took TWO screenwriters to come up with something this bad: an absolutely mangled murder mystery played as a lame slapstick comedy. Zero Mostel was originally cast to play Poirot but pulled out due to delays caused by Agatha Christie being unhappy with the script, but clearly she wasn't nearly unhappy enough because the thing still got made and it still stunk. Anyone who has seen and enjoyed David Suchet's brilliant portrayals of Hercule Poirot will be especially disturbed by this cringe-worthy mess.

    This film is not that bad but the story has been changed and does not quite work. However, Tony Randall as Poirot is fine as are the rest of the cast. It is just different from most versions of Poirot so it takes a bit of getting used to but it is still well worth watching.
