Miss Marple Fans Beware....,
This review is from: Agatha Christie's The Mirror Crack'd [DVD] (DVD)
Worth watching for Elizabeth Taylor who plays a drama queen more extreme than she is. She plays the enigmatic yet seriously irritating actress at the centre of this story who becomes paranoid that someone is trying to kill her after one of her dedicated fans drops dead after swapping drinks with her at a party in their new country mansion. It seems that everyone has a motive, and super sleuth, Miss Marple, has to figure it out before Taylor gets bumped off. I enjoyed the Agatha Christie's novel hugely, and was only disappointed in the screen adaptation by the prescence of Angela Lansbury as Miss Marple. She is highly unsuitable (and unworthy) of the role. It gives an air of "Miss Marple does Pantomime Dame", which is why I can only give it 3 stars. Thoroughly enjoyable romp otherwise, with a killer of a twist.
