Hercule Poirot is enjoying a well-earned holiday aboard a luxury Nile steamer, when a mystery assassin takes the life of an heiress and he is called upon to track down the killer amongst his fellow travellers…
A visually sumptuous and quintessentially British production, Death On The Nile won an Oscar® for Anthony Powell’s costume design and introduced Peter Ustinov (Robin Hood, Spartacus) in his first portrayal as the iconic Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. Surrounding Ustinov are a stellar all-star cast including Maggie Smith (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie), Jane Birkin (Blow-Up), Bette Davis (All About Eve), David Niven (The Guns of Navarone), Mia Farrow (Rosemary’s Baby), George Kennedy (Cool Hand Luke) and Angela Lansbury (Beauty and The Beast, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Mary Poppins).
Based On The Novel By Agatha Christie
