This 1974 production of Agatha Christie's 1934 classic directed by Sidney Lumet is a judicious mixture of mystery, murder and nostalgia. Which member of the all-star cast, onboard the luxurious train, perforated the no-good American tycoon (Richard Widmark) with a dagger twelve times? Albert Finney as Hercule Poirot spreads unease among them with subdued wit and finesse.

Evil Under the Sun must be my favourite of all the Agatha Christie films with a plot full of twists and turns which keep you guessing throughout. Peter Ustinov plays Hercule Poirot to perfection.

Filmed in 1981 on location in Majorca, Spain and directed by Guy Hamilton (The Mirror Crack'd and Goldfinger). Evil Under the Sun was selected for presentation to Her Majesty the Queen at the 1982 Royal Film Performance.

Again Brabourne and Goodwin present us with an excellent star studded cast including Jane Birkin, Peter Ustinov, Colin Blakeley, Nicolas Clay, James Mason, Roddy McDowall, Sylvia Miles, Denis Quilley, Diana Rigg and Maggie Smith.

A brilliant transformation of Jane Birkin and excellently acted by all. A fantastic Music Score filled with classic songs from Cole Porter.
