Now, let's imagine TEN LITTLE INDIANS 2004--better special effects, the musical score featuring Christina Aguilera, Clay Aiken, Pink and REM. Director would be someone like Quentin Tarantino or Brian DePalma. And think of the cast:
BEN AFFLECK - Lombard
JENNIFER LOPEZ - Vera
SEAN CONNERY - Blore
ROBBIE WILLIAMS - Marston
HALLE BERRY - Ilone
DUSTIN HOFFMAN - Dr. Armstrong
TYNE DALY - The Judge
F. LEE ERMEY - The General
BOB NEWHART & SUZANNE PLESHETTE - The Housekeepers.
Oh, now, there's something to think about!
Just have fun watching these guys having fun.

The above poem is the idea behind this murder mystery/thriller movie. This is the second movie version of (Dame) Agatha Christie's novel "And Then There Were None" (1939).
Although this version's background story is the same as the first movie version (ten people invited to a stranded area by a mysterious stranger and murdered in accordance to the lines in a children's poem), this one takes place in a mansion that's on an isolated snowy mountain. This version is also the first adaptation of the novel to show the murders on screen. (The mansion used in the movie was a famous one located in Rush, North County, Dublin in Ireland. It no longer exists.)
Who are these ten invited guests? They are:
1. Engineer Hugh Lombard (Hugh O'Brian)
2. Secretary Ann Clyde (Shirley Eaton)
3. Singer Mike Raven (Fabian)

However, the 1965 film is not as tightly and richly told, nor as well-acted, as the 1945 version. Hugh O'Brian and Shirley Eaton are appealing and have strong screen presence. But their Lombard and Vera seem relatively superficial and wooden. He does not give as smart and layered a performance as Louis Hayward, nor is she as strong as June Duprez. Dennis Price and Wilfrid Hyde-White each strike a better balance between seriousness and playfulness in their roles than did Walter Huston and Barry Fitzgerald, but are not as energetic, commanding, and entertaining. Ilona is amusing, but exaggerated, and displaces the distinctive Brent.
Lombard's past crime, and even more harmfully the general's, are changed in 1965 to something trite and unexplained. To no effect, Lombard is changed from explorer to engineer.Read more ›
Director George Pollock, who worked on Rutherford's Jane Marple films, was also responsible for AND THEN THERE WERE NONE, which was released under the work's American title TEN LITTLE INDIANS. But on this occasion Pollock bit off a great deal more than he could chew, for the plot of TEN LITTLE INDIANS cannot be reduced to a single comic turn; to be effective it requires an ensemble cast, and in spite of one or two worthy peformances Pollock's tampering with the story's details and dumbing-down of the plot renders the whole film extremely flat. The only enjoyable performance in the film is by Wilfrid Hyde-White; the rest of the cast is either impossibly over the top (Daliah Lavi), tiresomely wooden (Shirley Eaton), or embarassingly bad (Fabian.Read more ›

I thought "And Then There Were None" was a bad adaptation...then one just flat out stinks.
Seriously, do not waste any time with this film. Please follow my advice.
The story was updated, moved to a chalet in the Swiss Alps, and the old spinster became a beautiful actress. All bad ideas. Read morePublished on April 28 2003 by J. Olsen
