E-vile Under the Sun


It was a overcast day and a bit of a rain, so what better day to have a good watch of Evil Under the Sun. Peter Ustinov stars as Hercule Poirot, the master detective in this Agatha Christie who done it, where an opulent beach resort provides the scenic setting for the film. And any movie with the likes of Diana Rigg, Maggie Smith and Sylvia Miles is bound to be dramatic, campy and memorable..........

Diana Rigg singing in her role as Arlena Marshall, along with the wonderful Maggie Smith. This scene could be a Saturday night at the Casa, what with all the drama and drunks sitting about.......


The movie is worth watching, it has a fine cast, the day wear is over the top, but the hats however...... were the crowning glory for me.

  7. One the all-time best film introductions. I absolutely love how the watercolor art during the opening credits gives little hints and clues about the actor playing that specific role. Classic! And yes I too was watching.

  12. I met Sylvia on Valentine's Day 2001, we spent most of the evening camping up the lines from this film & dishing on the cast (she said it was her favorite project ever).
    Great Movie! & remember Maddie: "You're not going to barbeque me to keep yourself is sailor suits."

    1. Oh Damn it. You lucky bitch! And when you were in in the chorus of a show, and not that I could ever compete. Even in those days, you could always throw your legs up in the air higher than any of us... and wider.

    2. Women fight like tigers when they are loosing their husbands.....
      Not that I have much experience with that sort of thing at all.

      ...and some wax, some bee's wax, for my shoes...

  13. I particularly love the Chinese hat Diana wears that actually figures rather prominently in the plot.

    Red on the outside and black on the inside.
