SUBTITLES option available for all 3 episodes. Aired first in1992, set 4 of the re-released series now being offered in order of the original TV airings.
`The ABC Murders' 1936 (also book release year) Jim Hastings returns to help Poirot who's anxious for a crime to solve. A murderer taunts Poirot with letters announcing deaths and signing himself as ABC. Victims are not as random as they seem, quickly discovered, but alphabetical. Star Donald Sumpter plays Cust, a stocking salesman. Donald Fraser played by Nicholas Farrell (A Woman of Alexander Bonaparte Cust are standout.
`Death in the Clouds' Agatha's 1935 publication seems to be taking place in that year. Poirot flies from Paris to London when a murder occurs on the flight making even Poirot a suspect, plus all aboard. Madame Giselle (Eve Pearce- `Lyyton's Diary') dies and Japp wants Poirot's help even if he may have been the killer. Lady Horbury (Cathryn Harrison) is delightful in lavish period costumes. Stewardess Grey (Sarah Woodward) super as Poirot's helper and catch Jenny Downham playing daughter Anne. See Paris of old, and an early passenger plane interior. Sets to drool over.
`One, Two, Buckle My Shoe' begins in 1925 ten jumps to 1937 (book from 1940) where Poirot has visited his dentist, who is shot, suicide?, or is Poirot again suspect with other patients? More good acting by Japp, who calls in the Belgian for assistance and questioning. A host of stars are suspects. Alaistar Blunt (Peter Blyth) rich banker; Fascist Carter (Christopher Eccleston); Mabelle; Sylvia (Joanna Phillips-Lane); cameo by (Mary Healey); Gladys (Karen Gledhill), and so many more the diversions, timeline, and trickery takes Poirot a full 17 minutes to explain at the end. Art Deco building exteriors are superb. Another feast of costume and set. Suspense is always a given.
These had been previously released in various "Poirot Movie Collections" using the old 1992 film to video transfers in standard definition. Now ITV, the owner of LWT programs, has gone back to the original camera films to do new Hi-Definition transfers, making the series look fresh and new.
The three great two hour episodes here are:
31 4-01 05/January/92 "THE A.B.C. MURDERS"
32 4-02 12/January/92 "DEATH IN THE CLOUDS"
33 4-03 19/January/92 "ONE, TWO, BUCKLE MYSHOE"
While these may have been filmed in 16mm, going back to0 the original camera 16mm film elements to create this transfer will always look better than a 1992 standard definition transfer of a 16mm copy made from a 16mm dubbing negative.
as it came on. We would try to figure it out before Poirot did, but he always won.
The gentle, polite manner and the smart calm way he uses the information to come to the answer
it really keeps you guessing. I love the little man who is not from France.
