The scene is set in the Coronation year of 1953 and the archetypal English village of St. Mary Mead. All is as it should be until Hollywood arrives in the form of an internationally famous film cast, leading to much local excitement and an epidemic of sudden death.

The Mirror Crack'd has an excellent cast from the cream of feature film actors including Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor, Tony Curtis, Kim Novak, Geraldine Chaplin and Edward Fox.

This is the first Christie film to feature the legendary Lady super-sleuth Miss Marple, played by Angela Landsbury, and follows on from the successful Poirot pictures. The introductory scene, a black and white murder mystery movie, is a little disorienting and gets the movie off to a great start. Excellent acting by all especially Elizabeth Taylor who looks stunning.

A good plot with cunning detective work by Miss Marple, but I felt the film didn't flow as well as it should.

Special Features include a Theatrical Trailer.
