“An engrossing, mystery-lover’s treasure from beginning to end” –Library Bookwatch

Intrigue and romance in Art Deco England

The Queen of Crime plumbs the recesses of the human heart in these five tales of mystery and murder, passion and peril, suspense and the supernatural.

In these stories, lesser-known Christie protagonists find themselves the victims of false accusations, embroiled in illicit love affairs, torn between duty and desire, and under the thumb of employers with questionable motives. These classic adaptations are Christie at her best, now on DVD for the first time.

The superb ensemble casts include Amanda Redman (New Tricks, Sexy Beast), Ralph Bates (Dear John, Poldark), Stephanie Cole (Doc Martin), Cherie Lunghi (Secret Diary of a Call Girl), Christopher Cazenove (The Duchess of Duke Street, Dynasty), and Rupert Everett (My Best Friend’s Wedding).

THE STORIES
Magnolia Blossom: An unhappy wife tries to escape her marriage.
The Mystery of the Blue Jar: A young man consults an expert on the paranormal.
The Red Signal: A séance foretells of sudden death and danger.
Jane in Search of a Job: An Englishwoman takes on a dangerous assignment.
The Manhood of Edward Robinson: A henpecked fiancé sets off on the drive of his life.

AWESOME Agatha Christie STORIES FROM TV Less known A.C. tales-as good as Poirot & Marple. Mystery/romantics judge them better. Stunning costumes & sets. Being period (20’s-30’s) suspense dramas–it’s timeless. Intensely spell-binding, captivating. Each episode has a lovely leading lady. Agatha Christie is only outsold by Shakespeare and the Bible. See this DVD set and know why.Set 2 is as good as Set 1, both based on some of her more obscure writing. No Poirot, but great characters, regardless. Five new A.C.Hour mysteries…

Lesser Known Christie Gems Poirot has spoiled me. The show, with David Suchet’s spot on portrayal of Christie’s best-known detective and the stellar writing and production values it routinely utilizes, has set a very high standard for Christie dramatizations. Other adaptations of her work – particularly older television productions – may well, in comparison, seem to come up short. And I’ll admit straight out that The Agatha Christie Hour doesn’t look nearly as polished as Poirot.But that lack of polish didn’t…
