Trying to find how a millionaire wound up with a phony diamond brings Hercule Poirot to an exclusive island resort frequented by the rich and famous. When a murder is committed, everyone has an alibi. But fun it is to follow this cast of English and US characters in their stay at the elegantly old-fashioned resort hotel on a remote Tyrrhenian island Full review. With Ustinov's energetic impersonation of Poirot and Anthony Shaffer's traditionally structured script, Death on the Nile offered a fair recreation of Agatha Christie's world, but this time Christie herself would rightly have disowned the film.

Evil Under the Sun Synopsis
Kill Bill: Vol. - THE setting is an island in the Adriatic and a small, exquisite, extremely expensive resort hotel that once was the summer palace of the reigning king of Tyrania. It's the late 's, just about the time of the Anschluss, though no one at the hotel could care less about Hitler, National Socialism, Austria's sovereignty or an era's imminent end.
Evil Under the Sun is a British mystery film based on the novel of the same name by Agatha Christie. A hiker finds a dead woman on the Yorkshire moors; the victim, who has been strangled, is identified as Alice Ruber. Assured that Sir Horace gave a real diamond to his mistress and she later returned the fake to him, Poirot agrees to meet Sir Horace at an exclusive Adriatic island resort to confront her. The hotel is the former summer palace of the reigning King of Tyrania, now owned by Daphne Castle Maggie Smith , who had received the palace "for services rendered". Arlena is emotionally abusive to her stepdaughter, Linda Emily Hone , and flirts with handsome young Patrick Redfern Nicholas Clay , who is himself married to the meek Christine Jane Birkin.
The delicious moments in an Agatha Christie film are supposed to come at the end, when the detective in this case, the redoubtable Hercule Poirot gathers everyone in the sitting room and toys with their guilt complexes before finally fingering the murderer. It begins in the usual way, with a corpse. It continues in obligatory fashion with the gathering of a large number of colorful and eccentric suspects in an out-of-the-way spot, which just happens to also be the destination of Hercule Poirot. It continues with the discovery of another corpse, with the liberal distribution of gigantic clues and with Poirot's lip-smacking summary of the evidence. It's the cast that makes EVIL more fun than the previous manifestations of this identical plot. As Poirot, Peter Ustinov creates a wonderful mixture of the mentally polished and physically maladroit.
Poirot discovers that the diamond was bought for Arlena Marshall Dame Diana Rigg by Sir Horace Blatt Colin Blakely , and Arlena is on her honeymoon with her husband and stepdaughter on a tropical island hotel. He joins them on the island and finds that everybody else starts to hate Arlena for different reasons, refusing to do a stage show, stopping a book, and for having an open affair with Patrick Redfern Nicholas Clay , another guest, in full view of his shy wife. A very rich and evil woman Diana Rigg is murdered. The owner of the resort Maggie Smith hires Poirot to find the killer. This was made because "Death on the Nile" was such a big hit.
