This Agatha Christie Miss Marple Movie Collection includes MURDER SHE SAID, MURDER AT THE GALLOP, MURDER AHOY, and MURDER MOST FOUL.

MURDER SHE SAID: Miss Marple (Margaret Rutherford) poses as a housemaid to clean up a murder case. Based on Agatha Christie's 4:50 From Paddington.

MURDER AT THE GALLOP: Rutherford and Robert Morley find suspense and comedy at an equestrian hotel. From After The Funeral.

MURDER AHOY: A seagoing whodunit - with the spinster sleuth showing why she was Ladies National Fencing Champion of 1931!

MURDER MOST FOUL: Curtain up! Miss Marple joins an acting troupe to find a killer. Based on Mrs. McGinty's Dead."

"[She Said] Stealing every scene that's she's in, the indomitable Rutherford plays Miss Marple with a zesty zeal...  BBC Film Review
"[Gallop] Ms. Rutherford is simply brilliant as Agatha Christie's Miss Marple. She is perfect with her literal tongue in cheek...  Newt, Absolutely Fabulous Movie Reviews

Editor's Note
MURDER AHOY!: There's something fishy aboard the HMS Battledore, a training ship designed to give young hoodlums a chance at new lives. When Miss Jane Marple comes aboard to investigate, she discovers that someone is training the delinquents to be better thieves instead of good citizens.

MURDER MOST FOUL: Miss Marple joins a theatrical troupe whose specialty is death scenes. Convinced that one of her fellow actors is playing the part of murderer for real, Miss Marple sets out to pinpoint the killer and set a trap.

MURDER AT THE GALLOP: MURDER AT THE GALLOP is based on Agatha Christie's AFTER THE FUNERAL. When wealthy old Mr. Enderby dies, his not-so-bereaved relatives gather for the reading of the will. There, Aunt Cora inquires as to the cause of Mr. Enderby's death, only to be silenced in the same fashion.

MURDER SHE SAID: Dozing in her train seat, the English gentlewoman Miss Jane Marple awakens in time to witness a dreadful strangulation aboard a passing train. When she cries "Murder!" to the police, they tell her that she was only dreaming. Undaunted, she sets out to find the truth, even if it means uncovering an extra body or two.

DVDLaser.com 8 of 10
[All] Agatha Christie's Murder, She Said/Murder Most Foul, are totally delightful, and Rutherford herself is exquisite, feeding the films' narrative surprises while remaining fully reactive to her surroundings. Her face is a factory of contours and expressions, working overtime. In Foul her character's curiosity having been piqued by serving on a hung jury for a murder case, she decides to investigate it on her own and ends up joining an acting troupe (to audition, she recites The Ballad of Dan Magrew), in which one of the performers is the murderer. Ron Moody co-stars. The solution, however, is not as elegant as the solution in Said . The two films on Agatha Christie's Murder at the Gallop/ Murder Ahoy are closer in spirit to Murder Most Foul , but both are highly engaging. - Doug Pratt
