One of Agatha Christie's most popular characters, the beloved Miss Marple, is brought to life in these classic BBC and A&E Home Video mysteries. Included in the box set are 4:50 from Paddington, Sleeping Murder, The Mirror Cracked from Side to Side, and A Caribbean Mystery. The delightful Joan Hickson is always entertaining as the prim and proper Miss Marple, complete with her elderly woman charm and perpetually clicking knitting needles.
In 4:50 from Paddington, Miss Marple's good friend Elspeth McGillicuddy witnesses a man strangle a woman on a passing train, and it's up to Miss Marple to uncover the mystery. In Sleeping Murder, the Reeds move into their dream house, where Mrs. Reed is plagued by the vision of a body in the hall. In turn they call upon Miss Marple to help them uncover this strange phenomenon. When the American movie star Marina Gregg in The Mirror Cracked from Side to Side is almost murdered while filming her new picture, she's fortunate to have the help of Miss Marple to sniff out the evil culprit. A Caribbean Mystery has Miss Marple, who's in need of rest and relaxation, deciding to holiday in the West Indies. Her holiday soon turns into a working vacation when it's time for her to gather the usual suspects. This box set is a must-have for the video libraries of all whodunit enthusiasts and Miss Marple admirers. --Samantha Allen Storey --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Poor, poor result. The first set of DVDs seemed to be copies of copies that were of such poor quality that you couldn't see anything on the screen. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Christopher Hayes

False advertising! There are no subtitles. I love the Joan Hickson Miss Marple series but since I have a hearing deficit, I prefer movies with subtitles. Read morePublished 13 months ago by ROM

I bought this because all I had was a VHS of this movie. I bought it in good faith thinking that the movie was the same that I had on my VHS, when in fact it isn't. Read morePublished on Oct. 13 2011 by Duchess
