Ten Little Indians

1989

Alan Birkinshaw
Director

Studio

Fifth screen version (the third by Harry Alan Towers) of the Agatha Christie masterpiece features an odd change of location to a Safari in Africa, and performances which range from very good (greats Herbert Lom and Donald Plaseance, and Sarah Maur Thorp-who only made a handful of films) to ludicrous (Yehuda Efroni) to wooden (Frank Stallone) and the bizarre pairing of sophisticated Moira Lister and the gargantuan Paul Smith as husband and wife! The film also features a recording of Noel Coward's Mad Dogs and Englishmen.
