Title: Death On The Nile

Date: 1978
Type: Murder mystery
Rating: 3 Stars 3/5
Colour: Yes
Director: John Guillermin

Hercule Poirot (Peter Ustinov) investigates a murder on a boat cruising down the Nile. This all star cast version of the Agatha Christie novel produces a film that has a glossy feel and is set against a backdrop of ancient Egyptian sites along the river nile. The direction though gives the film a very staid and ponderous feel, despite a competent cast.
