Agatha Christie's Marple: Fan Favorites Collection [3 Discs] [DVD]

Cardholder Offers



The first season of the British mystery series Agatha Christie's Marple offers meticulously faithful feature-length adaptations of four of Agatha Christie's novels centering around spinsterish amateur sleuth Miss Jane Marple, here played by Geraldine McEwan. The opening episode is "The Body in the Library," in which Miss Marple tries to ascertain the identity of a strange blond woman, found dead in the library of a prosperous married couple. This is followed by "The Murder at the Vicarage," wherein Marple is deluged with suspects in the murder of a grumpy military officer -- several of whom all too eagerly confess to the crime. Marple then looks into a murder supposedly committed on the "4:50 From Paddington," even though no body or evidence of any kind can be found. And in the final episode of the season, "A Murder is Announced," Marple wonders who has placed a classified ad declaring that a murder will take place at a certain time -- and who committed that murder precisely at that time. ~ Hal Erickson
