I am probably biased by having watched this film many times since I was a child, but I continuously find "Ten Little Indians" a thoroughly enjoyable picture. It is a fascinating blend of Agatha Christie's original novel with some 1960s "updates," which by now are as historical as the source material. Overall, the acting is quite good, with Wilifred Hyde-White, Shirley Eaton, Stanley Holloway, and Hugh O'Brian providing a solid foundation. The plot is mostly untampered with from the original, except some additions to lead to a more optimistic ending (which Christie herself used when she converted it to a play). If you find yourself wanting to snuggle in for the evening, "Ten Little Indians" is a great choice.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The resitly watch the ''Ten Little Indians,'' in my Novles class and i did not enjoy it at all. I thought all the characters did not fit the actors. I mostly disliked the Judge. Wilfrid Hyde White played the Judge and he did not fit the character. He did not look scary or crazy. He looked like he could play Santa Clause. I was very disappointed in the movie. Everything had change. From the beginning to end, it was different. The characters, the atomsphere, the murders, and the ending had all changed. I liked the novle's rendention of things better than the movie. Overal, I did not like the movie because it ruin the book. The movie was not at all like the book. I was even more disappointed in the ending. It was a major disappointment after reading a great book.

This is a great movie to watch on a cold Winter night while you are piled up on the couch with your favorite blanket and a cup of hot chocolate. The most interesting and FUN part of this movie is the ending which let's you play along with the whodunnit game.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
