Murder at the vicarage (Miss Marple) - Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie's Miss Marple: Nemesis
Sign up for our thrice-weekly newsletter here. More than 40 years after her death, Agatha Christie is having a moment. There are so many Christie adaptations — and, in some cases, so many versions of the same story — that you may be confused about where to start. One by one, characters start dropping dead. Charles Laughton stars as an ailing lawyer who agrees to represent Leonard Vole Tyrone Power , a man charged with murdering the love-struck widow who has made him the heir to her substantial fortune Norma Varden. After witnessing a murder on a passing train, Marple goes undercover as a maid at the estate where she believes the body was dumped and starts digging. Decades later, hers remains the most iconic Marple on film.
In this crime series, an elderly, deceptively delicate amateur detective solves murders. The residents of Chipping Cleghorn receive an invitation to a murder through the paper. Miss Marple: Joan Hickson. Miss Blacklock: Ursula Howells. Julia: Samantha Bond. Jason Rudd: Barry Newman.
It was the first of 12 murder mysteries in a television series that was to run for eight years, ending only when Hickson insisted on retiring at the age of Previous stars who played the veteran spinster sleuth included Helen Hayes, Angela Lansbury, and Margaret Rutherford Hickson had a small role in Rutherford's first Miss Marple film, Murder She Said in , who first popularised the character of Miss Marple in the Sixties and brought the portrayal of eccentric old ladies to a fine art. In Christie dedicated her novel The Mirror Cracked from Side to Side to Rutherford, "in admiration" - although after the author's death, it was revealed in her husband, Sir Max Mallowan's memoirs, that she believed Rutherford was totally miscast as Miss Marple. She was conceived as being a small delicate woman - said to be loosely based on Christie's maiden aunt - far closer in appearance to the petite and birdlike Hickson, with her piercing, hooded ice-blue eyes, than the more corpulent Rutherford with the expressive face and "the chins". Regarded by many as the definitive Miss Marple and someone who "inhabited" the part, Hickson was described by fellow actors as "Justice in a hand- knitted cardigan".
