    Death on the Nile (1978). For me, this is probably the best of the big screen Poirot outings with Peter Ustinov, before he got silly in the role, a much more straight forward and less mannered and less strangulated accented Hercule than Albert Finney. It's another star-studded enclosed setting murder mystery, though this time a travel log as much as a murder mystery, though you don't need to be Poirot to work out who's responsible. David Niven, Bette Davis, Angela Lansbury, Mia Farrow, Lois Chiles, Maggie Smith and George Kennedy are among the star-studdeders and John Guillermin's expert direction keeps the thing, a trifle long, all sailing along entertainingly well.



    I much prefer it to Orient Express, which is let down by Finney's odd portrayal.
    This does have dodgy accents though from Jack Warden and Farrow's weird Audrey Hepburn-ish British aristocrat shtick.

    I tried to paste a post from BritMovie and it didn't go well.

    I used the Toggle Advanced Editor to italicize and blacken words and the preview shows it, but when I post, it doesn't. The preview shows what I paste properly, but not when I post it.

    Right now it is pretty sucky.

      That looks like something that the vBulletin people should deal with

        How come every time you post anything I get an email alert?
        I should only get alerts when people send me a PM

        These are changes between the release you're running here and the release we're running on the old BritMovie

                I did get a lot of emails, but they do seem to have stopped now as the last message was from Steve at 02:53.

                  That's because that was the last time I posted anything.
                  Did you get an email about this post?

                    It seems to be when anyone (apart from me) posts anything

                      Yes, I typed too soon as I'm still getting emails.

                        This is a link to the Notifications section, which I hope works as it may point to my settings.

                        I'm going to try un-ticking a few boxes to see if that stops the emails.

                          After switching off all the tick boxes, I'm still getting emails.
