Please show And Then There Were None on TCM!!
We hope that TCM shows this excellent. Rarely do films do novels justice, but this one did an above average job and besides that, is very entertaining and well acted. I haven't seen it for many years but it would be wonderful to be able to enjoy it again. Thank you.
And Then There Were None (1945)
- James Higgins
90/100. For those that feel the plot is not very original have to realize, it was in 1945, and this is the film that so many others have copied. A true classic, based on an Agatha Christie novel "Ten Little Indians". The cast is comprised of actors who normally are supporting performers, and it works for this film because if there was a well known star, that person would be less suspect due to the audiences expectation that person will have more screen time. Casting the film this way adds to the mystery and suspense. Rene Clair expertly crafts this film to keep you glued to the screen, All the performances are good, Barry Fitzgerald and Walter Huston stand out. There are many clever touches throughout and Clair has created an intense and moody atmosphere. Great score, wonderfully done.
I completely agree
I agree with Diane's comments completely. This is a great movie, entertaining, and full of good acting and interesting characters. We need a well-done mystery, not cheesy, and this is mystery at its best. Good Sat. night with plenty of popcorn to munch on to ease the tension! Please TCM!

This is just aobut my all-time favorite movie. Don't remember the first time I saw it, but probably in the '50s on a tiny-screen TV. I fell in love with Louis Hayward, so handsome, so charming, just a bit dangerous which made him even more attractive. This is an Agatha Christie mystery - made real with superb acting by all, the old house - a star in itself, the fallen Indians(you'll find out that they "announce" each new death), the foreboding surroundings of Indian Island - it's got it all. I have the video and have watched it many times and each time, something new strikes me - a costume, some of the scenery, the way a line is said. First time viewers, can you guess who the murderer is? I bet not, that is how well the story is constructed, how nuanced the acting is, how suspenseful the directing. Please if you love this movie, conatct TCM and let's campaign to have it shown on TCM as the featured movie. Preferablly with some other Louis Hayward movies - there's an idea (Repeat Performance and The Man in the Iron Mask).
