3.0 out of 5 stars Hey, let's take a great story and totally ruin it! April 28 2003
Format:VHS Tape
The story was updated, moved to a chalet in the Swiss Alps, and the old spinster became a beautiful actress. All bad ideas. The movie tells the basic story, but manages to be quite dull and eventually loses all focus as it spirals to an end. The cast is bad overall; Dalilah Lavi is especially bad, and Fabian should never have been allowed to act. Skip this one (and run in fear from the 1975 version with Oliver Reed and Elke Sommer), stick with the original from 1945 titled "And Then There Were None."

5.0 out of 5 stars ALWAYS TEN LITTLE INDIANS Nov. 19 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I don't agree with most of the reviews of this. I think this is a good adaptation, and is seriously over/under/adequately acted by a marvelous group of character actors. Hugh O'Brian---cast because of his darkly handsome looks; Shirley Eaton for her blonde beauty; Daliah Lavi for those eyebrows; Marianne Hoppe and Mario Adorf were splendid in their housekeeping roles; Fabian appropriately as bad an actor as singer; and those wonderful British superstars Dennis Price, Stanley Holloway, Leo Genn and Wilfrid Hyde White hammy as they should be expected to be. The jazzy score is totally out of kilter, but it lends a kind of retrospective jolt to the senses.
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed results trying to realize story's potential Nov. 17 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The 1965 film is enjoyable and energetic. The characters are well-cast, especially the doctor, judge, Blore, and general. Some are more feisty than elsewhere, like the maid, butler, and spinster Brent, revamped as conceited actress Ilona and given a different, but entertaining, character and past crime. Only in this film are the maid and butler convincingly menacing. Fabian is obnoxious as a re-named Marston, but he is supposed to be; the film nicely places that character in a dissolute career, and he gives the best piano rendition of Ten Little Indians. The film livens up the methods and depictions of the murders. It changes some words of the nursery rhyme, but it closely adheres to its own version, right down to a bear statute toppled onto one character. Interactions between characters are more heated and less dainty than in 1945, as they should be, given the events.
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.

Format:VHS Tape
The 1930s Agatha Christie novel AND THEN THERE WERE NONE was a sensation: ten unconnected people are invited to an isolated resort only to discover they have been lured by a hidden psychopath intent on bumping them off one by one in retribution for crimes they have committed in their pasts. Nothing like it had been seen before, and Christie adapted the novel to the stage where it proved equally popular. A 1945 film version of the stage adaptation by director Rene Clair was also extremely successful with both critics and the public. But in the 1960s Christie sold the film rights to a number of her novels, and the result was string of low budget films starring Margaret Rutherford as Jane Marple. Christie openly despised these films, but Rutherford's enjoyable comic performances made them very popular at the box office, and a remake of AND THEN THERE WERE NONE became inevitable.
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.
