I’m not going to try to describe this movie other than to say that it is very well-written and acted, but I guess I’m supposed to say that down there: \/\/\/
Based off an Agatha Christie story, so you know it’s good. One of the best endings I’ve ever seen put to film.
Everyone with their name on that poster is dynamite. Charles Laughton as the crotchety Sir Wilfrid Robarts is absolutely hysterical in the driest manner possible.
Simple sets complimented with stark photography serve to be undistracting from the performance.
The effects employed were done in a practical and believable style, lending credence to their effect on the plot.
It was really good, and completely satisfying.
Required watching for fans of court and crime dramas.
