    One of Agatha Christie's most popular characters, the beloved Miss Marple, is brought to life in these classic BBC and A&E Home Video mysteries. Included in the boxed set are 4:50 from Paddington, Sleeping Murder, The Mirror Cracked from Side to Side, and A Caribbean Mystery. The delightful Joan Hickson is always entertaining as the prim and proper Miss Marple, complete with her elderly woman charm and perpetually clicking knitting needles.

    In 4:50 from Paddington, Miss Marple's good friend Elspeth McGillicuddy witnesses a man strangle a woman on a passing train, and it's up to Miss Marple to uncover the mystery. In Sleeping Murder, the Reeds move into their dream house, where Mrs. Reed is plagued by the vision of a body in the hall. In turn they call upon Miss Marple to help them uncover this strange phenomenon. When the American movie star Marina Gregg in The Mirror Cracked from Side to Side is almost murdered while filming her new picture, she's fortunate to have the help of Miss Marple to sniff out the evil culprit. A Caribbean Mystery has Miss Marple, who's in need of rest and relaxation, deciding to holiday in the West Indies. Her holiday soon turns into a working vacation when it's time for her to gather the usual suspects. This boxed set is a must-have for the video libraries of all whodunit enthusiasts and Miss Marple admirers. --Samantha Allen Storey

    4 of 4 people found the following review helpful: Tea, crumpets and murder!, February 19, 2003 Reviewer: idaisa from Bridgetown Barbados Excellent value for money are these faithful adaptations of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple novels. Faithful at least to the spirit and atmosphere of the books. 4.50 from Paddington was also published as What Mrs McGillicuddy Saw, and that was my favorite adaptation, although The Mirror Crack'd was very well done, too. Joan Hickson is very much Miss Marple, all faded and sloping bosomed,and wrinkly pink and white, not bustling and robust like the old Hollywood version which made me cringe.Very enjoyable civilised viewing for all anglophiles. One issue, A Caribbean Mystery is set in Barbados, where I live, and yes it still does look exactly as it does in the film, although set 4 decades ago.All the black actors except one are British(the priest at a funeral is Wendell Smith, a local actor with a terribly fake accent!)I've never heard or seen the ritual performed at the gravesite in Barbados, and Christie certainly never mentions it in her book. Otherwise these movies are very beautifully done, and very authentic in their portaryal of life (and death) in small enclosed societies, both British and Barbadian.Add these as companions to your Christie library.
