Agatha Christie's Egyptian Epic

6 years, 10 months ago at Jun 7 18:10

The first time I saw this was in summer in a cinema where the air conditionong was broken down. It gave it that extra Egyptian feel and smell.
I like Ustinov's Poirot as much or more than any other. Like a good Agatha Chritstie epic it is......long. Use need an intermission to go stretch your legs, have a piss, buy a choc ice that sort of thing.

A good movie

After 'Murder on the Orient Express', it is the second Agatha Christie's adaptation have seen those last years. Once again, you have a prestigious cast and I must say I enjoyed the story more than with 'Murder...'. Some of the characters are hilarious like Mrs. Van Schuyler (Bette Davis) and Miss Bowers (Maggie Smith) but some others are more obnoxious and not really funny like Salome Otterbourne ... read more

"نهر النيل River Nile Cruising the Nile is a popular way of visiting upper Egypt. The Nile River has been Egypt’s lifeline since ancient times and there is no better way to trace the passage of Egypt’s history than to follow the course of the Nile. Almost all Egyptian cruise ships travel the Luxor-Aswan route which is safe, scenic and terminates at two of Egypt’s most important towns. Taking a Felucca down the Nile is an adventurous option. Feluccas are sail boats that have been "

A good movie

“After 'Murder on the Orient Express', it is the second Agatha Christie's adaptation have seen those last years. Once again, you have a prestigious cast and I must say I enjoyed the story more than with 'Murder...'. Some of the characters are hilarious like Mrs. Van Schuyler (Bette Davis) and Miss Bowers (Maggie Smith) but some others are more obnoxious and not really funny like Salome Otterbourne (Angela Lansbury) and Dr. Bessner (Jack Warden). I thought the plot was quite thrilling, even though I figured out the whole thing, expect for 1 or 2 things, even before anyone got killed. Honestly, I thought it was quite obvious but I enjoyed it anyway. Definitely worth a look, especially if you like this genre.” read more

Murder Most Foul (26 movies items)

"Hercule Poirot is definitely my favorite fictional sleuth. What a great cast too: David Niven, Angela Lansbury, Betty Davis and Mia Farrow to name a few. Plot: A murder is committed on a Nile steamer, but Hercule Poirot is on board... Location: Nile River, Egypt Fav Quotes: "You perfectly foul French upstart!" "Belgian upstart, please, madame." "You damn froggy eavesdropper." "Belgian! Belgian eavesdropper!" "
