And Then There Were None [DVD] [1945]

Rene Clair's adaptation of the oft-filmed Agatha Christie murder mystery Ten Little Indians comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. There are neither subtitles nor closed captions on this release. Although there are no supplemental materials of any consequence, And Then There Were None should appeal to any fan of Christie mysteries, although the disc itself offers little for the average DVD consumer.

Synopsis

And Then There Were None
Based on the classic novel by mystery author Agatha Christie that was later adapted as the Broadway hit Ten Little Indians , And Then There Were None begins with ten characters, each with a skeleton in his or her closet, on a remote island off the English coast. They soon realize that they have been brought there by an insane judge, who has tried each of them for criminal behavior in the past, and who now feels it is his duty to render proper justice for each. The struggle to stay alive begins as each "guest" is eliminated in a fashion that corresponds to the titular nursery rhyme. Walter Huston, Louis Hayward, and C. Aubrey Smith are among those marked for death. The film's ending differs from that of the novel, and later remakes in 1966, 1975, and 1989 (all using the title Ten Little Indians), alternated between Christie's original finale and this film's climax. Depending on one's taste, the film's pacing is either excruciatingly slow or suspenseful, but the storyline has become a cinematic staple in everything from horror (Theatre Of Blood) to satire (Murder By Death). ~ Don Kaye, Rovi
