Terry D. Robertson says:

The Original Miss Marple Oscar winner Dame Margaret Rutherford was the first to play the famous Agatha Christie amateur sleuth. This time around, Miss Marple is doing her usual charity drive and runs across a dead wealthy recluse. The death is cited as a heart attack due to his fear of cats, but Marple has a piece of hardened mud of a riding boot marking. She deliberately listens through the window of the reading of the will and none of the family seem to upset over the death but are keenly interested in what they…

The Reviewer Formerly Known as Kurt Johnson says:

It’s great! When elderly spinster Jane Marple (played by Margaret Rutherford) witnesses the death of Mr. Enderby, she realizes that this is no accident. Eavesdropping at the reading of the old man’s will, she overhears Aunt Cora state categorically that he was murder, and later Aunt Cora is ruthlessly murdered. There’s a murder on the loose, and Miss Marple is determined to find out who it is! [Black and White, released in 1963, with a running time of 1 hour, 22 minutes.] 

D. Kerr says:

Saddled for Suspense and Comedy Margaret Rutherford is an absolute jewel playing the amateur detective, Miss Marple. She steals almost every scene with her semi-dotty manner, but each time surprises with that smashingly brilliant and piercing British logic!
