I like the book, I didn't like the McKewen Adaptation but I liked the beginning, at the beginning someon says Miss Otis is unable to see you today which is a song the title of which was inspird by a real Occurrence, I also liked the Detective but I am afraid the Adaptation quickly goes down hill IMHO.
I love the Hickson Adaptaton,, I think the Cast is brilliant, Peter Baldwin, Caroline Blackiston, Helena Michelle and the woman who played Lady Selina Hazy
The best time to plan a book is while you're doing the dishes.
Not as bad as Nemesis or Sleeping Murder.
You did it! You found
the fourth little soldier boy!
You may be surprised to know that though the current
television adaptation of And Then There
Were None sets the story on the traditional “Soldier Island,” most of the
English-language movie adaptations move the action elsewhere. While the 1945 film version uses the
traditional island off the coast of England, the 1965 remake sets the story in
an isolated chalet in the snow-covered mountains. (Incidentally, that 1965 version includes a
gimmick at the end. Shortly before the
villain is revealed, the action pauses and a narrator provides a series of
clues, and the viewers are given one minute to figure out whodunit before the
last scene is played.) The 1974 version
takes place in a hotel surrounded by the Iranian desert. The 1989 adaptation brings the characters on
an African safari, and the guests are abandoned in an out-of-the-way camp.
And before you ask, yes, there’s another word written on the
soldier boy statuette. “Taylor.” All four words so far have something in
common, but what does that mean?
