Format: VHS Tape
In case it gets cross posted this is a review of [Collection 2 (1986) ASIN: 630340488X] This collection contains five Aunt Jane Movies ("The Moving Finger," "Nemesis," "The Murder at the Vicarage," "At Bertram's Hotel," "They Do It with Mirrors,"]. There is no way to rank these movies as to which one is best. They are like shoes; everyone has a different favorite.
I did look it up to find that all of Agatha Christie's full Miss Marple novels were made in to movies with Joan Hickson as Miss Jane Marple. And this set has 5. Agatha Christie Collection 1 - Boxed Set ASIN: 6303111564, contains 4 more. Then there are three individual films not in the collection boxes.
If you do not obtain them all you will be haunted for the rest of your life wondering what you missed.

I love the Miss Marple stories. They are cozy, ingenious, and startling at the same time. Joan Hickson is marvelous as Miss Marples. The problems with these productions is two-fold: adaptation and picture quality. If more time had been alloted to each episode, then I'm sure these programs would have been better. As it is, things are rushed (as compared with the novels). In a mystery this is not a good thing. BUT this is a minor complaint compared to the horrendous picture quality of all but "They Do It With Mirrors." How any company could have the nerve to put this out and have the gall to charge for it is beyond me. You would think A&E would care more, but then just check out these same episodes when they are broadcast: the same lousy quality. The picture looks like it is several generations removed from the original and whatever source material was used for the transfer was faded, worn out, dirty, dull-looking (almost no contrast), and extremely grainy--in fact you could play connect the dots with the grain. In some scenes the picture has a wavering quality, especially near the top of the scene. Miss Marple and Agatha Christie deserve far better than this--not to mention us, the consumer. A&E should be thoroughly ashamed!

Format: VHS Tape
"Thousands of years ago, she had a measuring rod, a sword, and a whip - it's called a scourge," explains self-made millionaire Jason Rafiel (Frank Gatliff) to his nurse ... and "she rode about in a chariot driven by griffins." He is talking about Nemesis, the ancient Greek goddess of justice and vengeance, merciless punisher of human transgressions against the natural order, whose epithet was Adrasteia - she whom none can escape. "Last time I saw her," Rafiel then adds, laughing with some difficulty, "she was wearing a pink wool shawl ..."
For the old gentleman, virtually a step away from his own death at this point, is also speaking about Miss Jane Marple, elderly spinster from St. Mary Mead, whom he had met six years earlier on a Caribbean Island (see "A Caribbean Mystery," 1965), where together they had unmasked a cold-blooded killer. And although gruff old Jason had initially had only contempt for the lady, apparently so completely out of her element with her knitting needles and tweeds, which she wouldn't even relinquish under tropical blue skies and palm trees, he had soon changed his mind, realizing the powers of her razor-sharp logic and profound understanding of human nature. Thus, as he now sets about settling his own life's final score, there is no question in his mind who to turn to for help - none other than Jane Marple will do. "I imagine you knitting headscarves and that sort of thing," reads the commission she receives through his London solicitors (Roger Hammond and Patrick Godfrey) shortly after his death. "If that's what you prefer to go on doing, that's your decision. But if you prefer to serve the cause of justice, I hope you find it interesting.

Format: VHS Tape
This is one of those films [incase it is cross posted this is a review of "Miss Marple: Nemesis (1986) ASIN: 6303404855] that need to be watched twice. So much is packed from the beginning that you may forget it by the time you need the information. Then you can say "Oh, that was why."
A previous stated "This play isn't about a murder, it's about Miss Marple." And many of the characters repeat this through out the film. And this is maybe not standard but one of the plays where everyone and then some shows up in one place. It is not quite like "And Then There Were None (1945)" ASIN: 6304679661, but in a way more complicated.
Everyone is wrapped up in saying how good the plot is, how good Agatha Christie is, and how well Joan Hickson played Miss Jane Marple. Slow down and look at the Scenery and props. This has the look and the feel of the time from the buildings to the busses. It makes you feel that you are part of that time. At least you want to visit there.
