Alphabet Murders (Tony Randall)

I had avoided this film after seeing snippets, but I finally steeled myself and viewed the whole thing.  
If Agatha Christie did not like the Rutherford Marple films she must have hated this one !
I can not recommend it on any level.  Only the Rutherford and Stringer cameo makes it fun.  Randall's accent goes in and out and the film's comic elements overpower the drama.   Poirot is made to be a buffoon.

    The Review makes me want to see it all the more now.        If you can watch it and totally forget whatever you have read about Poirot it could be fun.  In it's defense (as in defense of the new SHERLOCK series)  "anything that makes the viewer want to read the original author..." is a plus and a benefit.
