      I have to say that the first thing I noticed about this second entry in the movie’s Miss Marple mystery movie by Agatha Christie is the very bright and campy musical theme. It’s just so bubbly and merry that it seems like follows should be more of a comedy than a drama.

      The movie in question is Murder at the Gallop from 1963 which stars Margaret Rutherford in the role of the female sleuth.

      The second thing I noticed about this black and white mystery is that Miss Marple actually brings up Christie and proclaims that reading her novels should be mandatory. Now that ...


      • was worth a chuckle.

        That’s the thing about Miss Marple, though. She’s spry for a senior citizen of that era. She has color and moxie, and she just sticks her nose right into things. It makes it quite fun.

        There’s no way I’m going to spoil the story at all, except to

        say that it’s Miss Marple doing her thing, getting involved when the police would rather she wouldn’t, and living life to its fullest. The scene where she catches the killer is a hoot. She’s like the anti-little old lady, just waiting for her fly to step into her sleepy web. It’s great.
