    I understand MGM is releasing these four movies on DVD but may I ask that The Alphabet Murders be included as well. This is Hercule Poirot with Tony Randall (?!) as Poirot (no, Jack Klugman is not Hastings), but Margaret Rutherford shows up as Mis Marple in a walk-on. Rutherford is certainly not Joan Hickson, but she's fun to watch and I'd like to have this cameo as well.

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure about the US, but in Europe the Miss Marple's are owned by Warners and have been released here as no-frills discs. All prints are either 4:3 or 1.66:1 cropped.

    That's good to know about the UK set.I read Miss Marple was coming out in the US but not until 2005.

    Trivia note:
    Joan Hickson had a small role in Murder she said (1961) long before she herself started to play Miss Marple...
