As will be obvious from reviews on Amazon.com, Helen Hayes appears as Miss Marple in only two of these films. In Murder is Easy (not a Miss Marple book in any event), she appears for the sole purpose get herself killed at the beginning, after passing on her suspicions about some curiously coincidental deaths in her village to Bill Bixby. The remainder of the film I found a bit cheesy and the acting fairly poor.

As to the other two - well they're okay. Perhaps it's unfair to compare Helen Hayes with Joan Hickson or even Geraldine McEwan and Julia McKenzie as, for some irrational reason, an American playing the role of an archetypal English spinster grates on me. I also found the acting generally somewhat facile and the characters inconvincing but perhaps this is because it was made with American tastes in mind. Or maybe it's because nobody - but nobody - has ever done Marple better than Hickson.

Be warned if buying this for UK use - the note that Customs may examine the parcel for value should be taken seriously. Mine was ripped open and I had to pay an additional £11.40 to collect it from the Royal Mail depot. Over £30 for three Marple films is not so cheap after all....

If you enjoy a good old English whodunit, then this box set is for you. Helen Hayes is only in three of the dvd's, as she is killed off in Murder is Easy, but this box set for me was well worth the money that I paid for it. You would have to have a multi-region DVD player, as this was a region 1. Good for Saturday or Sunday matinee's.
