Ten Little Indians
About Ten Little Indians
Director George Pollack shepherded four Agatha Christie thrillers into theaters between 1961 and 1964, each starring Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple and each a model of lighthearted moviemaking deftly mixing comedy and chills. In 1965, Pollack took an international cast including Hugh O’Brian, Shirley Eaton and Stanley Holloway to Ireland where he tackled Ten LIttle Indians, a remake of another Christie-based film, And Then There Were None. The eccentric presence of Rutherford is missed but there’s still fun to be had, particularly in Christopher Lee’s uncredited performance as a disembodied mystery man and a William Castle-like gimmick called the “Whodunit Minute” in which the movie comes to a halt in prelude to the reveal of the killer.
