Death on the Nile
Hercule Poirot solves the mystery of who killed the spoilt heiress on a steamer cruising down the Nile
A murderer strikes on board the luxury Nile steamer Karnak-and Hercule Poirot faces his most baffling case.
A pleasant thirties atmosphere and the travel poster backgrounds are the chief assets of this rather hesitant whodunnit that plays fair enough with the audience but gives its popular cast too little to do, while its constant repetitions of the crime become rather ghoulish. On the whole, though, a very passable representation of an old-fashioned genre, and a few points up on Murder on the Orient Express. (Halliwell’s)
