  • Whenever it hits the theatres, I'll go out and watch it BUT I'm not expecting much from the new production of Death On The Nile. At least I'll get a night to go out and enjoy popcorn and soda pop! The book will always be the best in my book! To have a movie based on Christie's books hitting the big screen is a treat but I wish they were more faithful to the book, instead of thrusting modern elements merely to appeal to a contemporary audience. Hope we won't get a Poirot that is half mystery, half action.

  • The original, Ustinov movie was fairly faithful, if you'd like to see it.

    I saw the Ustinov version and that is a good treatment of the book, simplifying it while at the same time being true to the material. Of course there are some flaws but nothing outstanding to turn me away.The snake part in the film I could have done without, though.

    I liked the snake part, It would have been nice if The Allerton's had been in The Film.

    ***SPOILERS***

    The big question I had in the Ustinov version was how did the killer get the snake to put in Poirot's cabin?  The boat didn't stop on the way back north, did it?  Would the guilty party have had to have bought it ahead of time?  Did the killer keep it in a cabin, feeding it for a couple of days just in case it was needed?
