Absolute "must-see" murder-mystery classic. Definitely an oldie but a goodie! One of those movies that really needs to be seen at some stage in your life, and the scenery in Egypt is breathtaking.

A classic Agatha Christie whodunit. Such a wonderful line up of actors, nice to see a much younger Maggie Smith. Peter Ustinov made a good Hercule Poirot.

An oldie but a goodie. Packed with stars who are a pleasure to watch with an excellent twist in regard to the murder(s).

I have seen this before 20 years ago and it was well worth a second watch. Not fast moving but kept your attention. Can certainly see why it has stood the test of time. Well worth viewing.

This movie was bit drawn out and boring no real action but i guess if you like to see some old stars was ok.
