One can categorize the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" 텔레비전 영화 into two categories. The ones made between 1989 and 2001, featured the supporting characters Captain Arthur Hasting, Miss 레몬 (Hercule Poirot), and Chief Inspector Japp. The ones made post-2001 sporadically featured the mystery writer, Adriande Oliver. The very last 텔레비전 movie that featured Poirot's close friend, Hastings, turned out to be 2001's "MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA".

Based upon Agatha Christie's 1936 novel, "MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA" told of Hercule Poirot's investigation into the...

"THE HOLLOW" (2004) Review

I have never been a 팬 of Agatha Christie’s 1946 novel, "The Hollow". Many would find my opinion surprising, considering its reputation as one of the author’s best works and a fine example of the "country house murder" story. But I cannot help how I feel. I simply never warmed up to it.

The 1946 novel eventually became a successful 런던 play in 1951. And in 2004, producers of the "Agatha Christie’s POIROT" series adapted the novel into a ninety-minute 텔레비전 movie in 2004, with David Suchet as Hercule Poirot. I have seen "THE HOLLOW" at least twice. Yet,...

I have been a 팬 of Agatha Christie's 1938 novel, "Hercule Poirot's Christmas" aka "A Holiday for Murder" for years - ever since I was in my early adolescence. When I learned that the producers of the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" series aired its adaptation of it back in 1994, I looked 앞으로 to watching it.

Written as a "locked room" mystery, "HERCULE POIROT'S CHRISTMAS" focused on Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot's investigation of the murder of Simeon Lee, a tyrannical patriarch of a wealthy family. The mean-spirited Lee, who had made his fortune in...

"THIRD GIRL" (2008) Review

Looking back on her career, I suspect that Agatha Christie was not at the 상단, 맨 위로 of her game as a novelist during the last decade-and-a-half of her life. There were a handful of novels during the period of 1960-1976 that I found unique. However, her 1966 novel, "Third Girl" was not one of them.

I take that back. I did find "Third Girl" rather unique . . . to a certain extent. I thought Christie did a pretty good job in re-capturing the Swinging Sixties atmosphere in her novel. Unfortunately, her streak of conservatism and a too complex plot made it difficult for me to...

"PERIL AT END HOUSE" (1990) Review

I just realized something. I have never read Agatha Christie's 1932 novel, "Peril at End House". I find this ironic, considering that I have seen the 1990 텔레비전 movie adaptation of this novel at least three 또는 four times. One of these days, I will get around to 읽기 Christie's novel and comparing it to the 텔레비전 adaptation. Right now, I am going to focus on the latter.

Directed 의해 Renny Rye and adapted 의해 Clive Exton, "PERIL AT END HOUSE" is the first full-length 텔레비전 movie aired on "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT". It is also about Belgian-born...
