Proper, demure, sharp as a tack, Agatha Christies spinster sleuth is brilliantly portrayed by Julia McKenzie. She dons the trademark tweeds as if they were made for her; each is surrounded by lavish post-WWII period detail and stellar supporting casts.
A Caribbean Mystery
Endless Night. Disc 1
A CARIBBEAN MYSTERY
Sent on an island vacation to relieve her rheumatism, Miss Marple isn't quite enjoying her stay at a posh hotel. After the sudden, suspicious death of a fellow guest piques her interest, she joins forces with a curmudgeonly tycoon to unravel a web of dark magic and deceit.
When a desperate young mother awakens Miss Marple in the middle of the night, the kindly sleuth helps her and her son find refuge at a nearby country house. It turns out the strange, labyrinthine building isn't the safest place after all, as bodies start piling up.
On a visit to a recently widowed friend, Miss Marple meets Mike Rogers, a handsome chauffeur with big dreams for his future and tragedy in his past. He marries the perfect girl, builds a beautiful home, and seems on track for the life he has always wanted. Then people start dying.
