Smithsonian magazine assesses Christie screen adaptations such as And Then There Were None with Louis Hayward and Barry Fitzgerald (1945); Love from a Stranger with Basil Rathbone (1947, version of
"Philomel College"); Murder She Said (1961, adaptation of 4:50 from Paddington) with Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple and Joan Hickson, the future Miss Marple; and The Alphabet Murders with Tony Randall (1965, adaptation of The ABC Murders). It also covers her Devon house Greenway. (Hat tip to Karen Jackson)
