My Thoughts

Acorn Media is back with a second set of classic Agatha Christie book adaptions with THE BEST OF AGATHA CHRISTIE, Volume 4.  The books really come to life on the small screen. I especially enjoy seeing David Suchet as Poirot. This set includes four exciting films.

The Mysterious Affair of Styles - 
In this feature length episode, Poirot is joined by Hastings.  He's recovering from a war wound when the two team up to solve a murder. 

Dead Man's Folly - A play hunt turns deadly when one of the participants turns up dead.

The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side -  A villager is killed during a party hosted by a movie star and Miss Marple is on the case.

 A Caribbean Mystery - Marple heads to the Caribbean Islands, hoping the warm weather will help her arthritis. But even on vacation she can't get a break from murder. When another guest at the posh resort turns up dead, Marple finds herself wrapped up in dark magic and deceit. 

Fans of Agatha Christie will certainly want to have this DVD set in their collection. Be sure to check out Volume 1 as well for more wonderful adaptions. You can order a copy of this fantastic DVD set on Acorn Media for only $39.99. You can also find it on Amazon.
