Agatha Christie

When I was in Middle School, I read all of the Agatha Christie novels. It is one of the reasons that mysteries are my fiction of choice to this day. Recently at the library I found a DVD set of "Agatha Christie Classic Mystery Collection". Of course that made it into my book bag!!

It has been great fun watching these mystery movies.....Agatha Christie is well known for her many twists and turns. Nothing is as it seems in her stories!! Peter Ustinov as Hercule Poirot and Helen Hayes as Miss Jane Marple are a joy to watch. There is also a lot of stars in these movies, Faye Dunaway, Stephanie Zimbalist , Rue McClanahan, and Ken Howard to name just a few.

These DVDs have been a real escapism treat!!
