"...A classic period whodunit....Clair tells the story with an offhanded, almost detached amusement..."
An Agatha Christie tale told four times on film, this is still the best. Ten guests on an isolated island are murdered one by one. The only clue is a children's nursery rhyme. A black comedy-mystery with terrific performances, AND THEN THERE WERE NONE is adapted beautifully by acclaimed French director Rene Clair.
Description by Image Entertainment:
This is it! Agatha Christie's famous mystery, "Ten Little Indians," deftly brought to the screen by legendary French director Rene Clair in this restored original screen masterwork. Ten strangers are invited as weekend guests to a mansion on a remote island. When the host doesn't show up, the guests start dying, one by one, in uniquely macabre Agatha Christie-style. A brilliant cast lead by Academy Award-winning actors Barry Fitzgerald and Walter Huston.
Based on Agatha Christie's mystery, this chilling tale tells of ten people, all strangers to one another, who are marked for death. Individually they are invited to stay at an English coastal villa. One by one, the guests, are mysterious murdered. Their only clue to the killings is a children's nursery rhyme.
- The original title of the book on which this film is based was: "Ten Little Niggers." This was also the original British title for the film.
- The story first appeared as one of Agatha Christie's magazine mysteries. It was later adapted for the stage and became a hit Broadway play titled "10 Little Indians."
