Miss Marple - 3-Volume Gift Set (DVD)
Starring Joan Hickinson
This collection of Agatha Christie murder mysteries stars the late Joan Hickson as the elderly sleuth, Miss Marple.
In this volume:
Murder at the Vicarage:
The tranquil village of St. Mary Mead, which nestles picturesquely in the rolling hills of the English countryside, is not quite as peaceful as it might first appear.
Over dinner at the vicarage, the vicar, his glamorous young wife Griselda, the handsome artist Lawrence Redding and Hawes, the nervous curate, discuss how they each would murder the odious Colonel Protheroe. Only Miss Marple has the foresight to warn them not to tempt fate.
The next day, Protheroe is found with a bullet in his head, slumped across the writing desk in the vicar's study.
Inspector Slack duly arrives to find that the case is not as simple as it might appear. At first he refuses to believe that a frail and fluffy old maid can help in any way -- but appearances can be deceptive and eventually he has to bow to Miss Marple's intimate knowledge of village life, her superior razor-sharp mind and her surprising knowledge of love and lust...
"Nemesis" - one who inflicts retribution or justice - seems an odd name for an elderly, rather frail woman. But not if that old lady is the formidable Miss Jane Marple. Soon after the death of financier Rafiel, the man who'd called her by that name, Miss Marple is summoned by his solicitors. A letter from the grave sends her on a baffling quest - to investigate an unidentified crime.
This DVD is from the original store-bought DVD. NTSC Format.
