Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Richard Gilliam
One of the quintessential "whodunit" mysteries, And Then There Were None is a stylish masterpiece of suspense elegantly staged by director René Clair. Based on the Agatha Christie novel Ten Little Indians, the film closely follows the tone and plot of the book, albeit with an altered ending. The cast is appropriately comprised of fine character actors such as Barry Fitzgerald, Walter Huston, Mischa Auer, and C. Aubrey Smith. Clair has cast each performer in a role well-suited to his or her strengths, and the result is a smooth, seamless progression from set-up to central mystery to dénouement. And Then is among the most influential of mystery tales, as its process-of-elimination resolution has been copied numerous times in a variety of formats.

    a.k.a. Ten Little Indians

    Although this film isn't flashy or full of blood and gore or special effects, I thoroughly enjoy it. It has become an old friend. It has a superb cast who play their parts very well and interact very well with one another. The location and the house lend themselves very well to the mood of the film because it is so isolated. Eight guests, a butler and cook are brought to an island home for the weekend by a host who never shows up and no way to leave until the boat comes back on Monday. One by one, they are murdered in fashion of the Ten Little Indians nursery rhyme. They all become very wary of one another because no one knows who is doing the killing.

    A classic mystery

    This film has a great cast. I believe it to be one of the better screen offerings of Agatha Christie's novel. Although the ending is different from the book, the movie is still worth watching. Barry Fitzgerald does a very good job as the judge. After watching his performance, it is difficult to imagine anyone else in the role. If you are a fan of classic old movie mysteries, you do not want to pass this one up. It is a fun film to watch.

    Review for And Then There Were None done by student from Gereau Center

    And Then There Were None is a mystery written by Agatha Christie. Originally it was named Ten Little Indians. Ten people are invited to the island of Devon by a mysterious host who never shows up. The first night on the island the people are accused of murdering another person. Of course none of the accused would admit to killing anybody else. That night begins the long train of murders...each person was killed in a way that coincides with a nursery rhyme.

    This book was very ironic because of the way that it ended. The reader does not expect who the murderer ends up being and the way the book comes to a hault is very ironic. I would elaborate more, but I refuse to give away the end of the book.

    Another literary device in the book was forshadowing. Agatha Christie does a very good job at forshadowing...everything in the book is a clue to what will happen next. Probably what she uses most to forshadow is the nursery rhyme about the indians.

    Christie also uses flashback quite often. Each character in the book is always thinking back to when the last one died and how it happened. They constantly ask themselves questions. Another thing they always reflect on is that person who they have been accused of murdering.

    The best part of this book is the end. I just love the way that Christie strings readers along and then out of nowhere every person on the island is dead and there is no more story to tell!! The worst part of the book was that it is hard to follow sometimes. The plot moves rather quickly and in order to know what is going on one must pay close attention while reading.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries, however if it is a person who does not pay attention very closely while reading...I probably would not read it.!! All in all it was an awesome book!!
