Angela Lansbury takes over the legacy of Margaret Rutherford as Agatha Christie's dogged sleuth Miss Marple in The Mirror Crack'd. The story takes place on a film set in a small British town in the 1950s. Elizabeth Taylor plays a washed-up actress trying to make a comeback but is plagued by a mysterious incident from her past. Unfortunately for her mental state, a collection of murders jar the quiet village where the movie is being made. Miss Marple arrives on the scene with her nephew, Inspector Craddock (Edward Fox), to investigate. In addition to Taylor, an assortment of other movie stars grace the roster of suspects, including Rock Hudson, Kim Novak, and Tony Curtis.

1980 version of the Agatha Christie novel, but Angela Lansbury's role of Miss Marple is not as true to Christie's character and not as good as the four other British actresses who have played Miss Marple series (and I have the highest admiration for Lansbury and saw her on Broadway too). Elizabeth Taylor's acting seemed stilted. Geraldine Chaplin is not much of an actress (she is the daughter of Charlie Chaplin). I recommend the same story with the "other" Miss Marple. (Yes, I am an Agatha fan having made special trips to her house near the coast of Devon and outside of Oxford and to her churchyard grave, as well as to the Swan Hotel in Harrogate Spa, Yorkshire, to where she made her "disappearance.")
