(1997 TV movie version) A bit dated, but not bad. I enjoyed the funny bits. I appreciated seeing Jean Marsh again who I have not seen since I used to watch her as Rose in the "Upstairs, Downstairs" TV series.
If you don't like to read or think much, you may like the 2010 version of The Pale Horse. It is set at least 10 years before Christie's story, re-writes 95% of it, moves the location to a dire, Fawlty Towers-like hotel, and shoehorns in Miss Marple, because franchise. Julia McKenzie is a good actress, but she's about as much like the elderly, seemingly wooly-headed, upper middle class English spinster as I am. Her Miss Marple actually IS wooly-headed, and bumbles around until the mystery is solved, mostly by accident. Strangely, the DVDs include a 1997 version, that is far better written, directed, and acted, and also faithful to the period and story. Colin Buchanan, Michael Byrne, and Andy Serkis are standouts. The contrast between the two is sad. 2010 version: *1/2. 1997 version: ****
