I got caught up in watching Murder, She Said (1961) last night--Margaret Rutherford's first outing as Agatha Christie's Miss Marple. I had every intention of doing a film commentary about it*, but decided to just lay back and enjoy the film without the nuisance of taking notes. The harpsichord-heavy theme music is just a delight even if such an obvious early 60's earmark. Who cares--I eat 60's nostalgia for lunch. Some interesting points of interest that I can remember, sans notes: Joan Hickson (the future PBS' Miss Marple) appears in a small part Marple's mystery-reading friend Jim Stringer is played by Rutherford's real-life husband, ironically named Stringer Davis When asked if she can cook, Miss Marple states she's "fair". Then proceeds to whip up scratch-made mushroom soup (with "just a touch of lemon") and curried duck with rice pilaf Ronnie Raymond, as the precocious kid Alexander who helps Marple find a dead body, had a very limited acting career and eventually made his living as an undertaker A current Marple facing a future Marple; Stringer / Stringer and wifey Margaret; Margaret auditioning for the cover of Cosmopolitan? *Sorry, Marv--I really did intend to do a full-blown commentary to help fill the thread. This was the best I could muster for now.
