An American movie actress, best known for playing dumb blondes, is Scotland Yard's prime suspect when her husband, Lord Edgware, is murdered. The great detective, Hercule Poirot, digs deeper into the case.
Hercule Poirot attends a dinner party in which one of the guests clutches his throat and suddenly dies. The cause seems to be natural until another party with most of the same guests produces another corpse.
The old and wealthy Mr. Enderby dies of a heart attack but the ever suspicious Miss Marple has her doubts. Who or what gave him a heart attack? Enderby's poor relatives gather at the The Gallop, a combined boarding-house and riding school. Miss Marple also gets there to find out if any of them had any particular reasons to see him dead.

At the scene of the second murder, while Miss Milcrest is being interviewed by Miss Marple and Inspector Craddock you can see a number of figurines behind Miss Craddock. Some in a cabinet and some on a shelf along the wall to the left of said cabinet. Some of the figurines on the shelf dipict the Wizard of OZ. It starts with the Tin Man Dorothy possibly the Scare Crow and then the Witch. (Working right to left along the shelf to the corner and continuing along the wall). It's possible the Lion is placed behind Miss Millcrest'a head. See more »
At the second murder scene, Miss Marple, while seated, grasps Inspector Craddock's arm to tell him something. When rebuffed by him, she is shown removing her hand twice between shots. See more »
Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple delights her audience in this wonderful mystery. Her use of the phrase, " I have a little tittle tattle for you inspector" is used as only Ms. Rutherford can. The concluding verbal scene with Robert Morley completes a wonderful motion picture.
