This book, which I call The Other Films of Agatha Christie, is a collection of films made for TV and the cinema which do not deal with films including the characters of Miss Jane Marple and Hercule Poirot. These films and characters can be found in books I have previously written, called The Films of Hercule Poirot, and The Films of Miss Marple. I have also written a book entitled Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians on Film and TV, which compares the nearly dozen filmed versions of that novel.
Herewith, we will find films that are NOT included in the above mentioned works. They include well-known film like Witness for the Prosecution, Endless Night, Ordeal By Innocence, and films and TV featuring the characters of Tommy and Tuppence. Also included is a 1982 television series called The Agatha Christie Hour, which dealt with short stories Christie wrote. These are psychological dramas, ghost stories and the like; many of them have no murders.
There are more than 50 films included, with complete cast lists, story synopses, and photographs. I have also included several documentary films, as well as some relatively obscure foreign language films. Also the film Agatha starring Vanessa Redgrave as Agatha Christie. I would like to point out that some of the earlier films, and also early/foreign television, went out as live transmissions, so there is comparatively little information available on those productions.
