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 recently. Basically, they pretty much followed the same template and, once again, they gave us a prestigious cast. In fact, I must say that I enjoyed this story more than the one they gave in  'Murder...'. Indeed, concerning ‘Murder…’, even though it was a fun movie to watch thanks to all the stars... read more

Almost everyone on the S.S.Karnak, cruising the Nile, has a reason to want heiress Linnet Ridgeway dead. Her jewels are coveted by elderly Mrs. van Schuyler, her maid is upset because Linnet won't give her a promised dowry, writer Salome Otterbourne is facing a libel suit brought by Linnet, Salome's daughter Rosalie wants to protect her mother, American Andrew Pennington has been embezzling from the Ridgeway family, and former friend Jacqueline de Bellefort is upset that Linnet stole her fiance, Simon, away from her. Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot must unravel the mystery when Linnet (and some of the others) turn up dead.

"3/7/17 An all-star cast led by Peter Ustinov as Agatha Christie's Hercules Poirot as he investigates the murder of an heiress while travelling down the Nile. The fun of these movies is watching the interaction between stars like Mia Farrow and Bette Davis while Ustinov brings a sense of fun to his Poirot. Of course, the reveal, where the detective gathers everyone to tell his deduction, is a hoot."
