Interesting little tidbit about the book. Agatha Christie thought about titling the story "Cover Her Face" but since there was already another book with that same title used by P.D. James, Christie decided to name it Sleeping Murder. I like both titles but Sleeping Murder is probably better, considering the fact that the quote from the Duchess of Malfi is already used in the story. The title fits this murder-in-retrospect mystery, looking back into the past into a murder that has been lying dormant for so many years and is now awaken beginning with Gwenda returning to the house she was brought up in.
P_Lombard said:I would give the movie three out of five stars. It had many strengths, but also had some glaring weaknesses.
-After Ratchett's death, the movie began to rush through the investigation. As a result, many of the clues were either eliminated or rushed through. Many of the details that explain why the characters behave as they do or that help Poirot to solve the mystery are eliminated.
