Ten Little Indians

I've always enjoyed this version (I like all of them), but the opening background music is horrible. It is much more suited to a Las Vegas revue. Excellent old British actors in the cast. Leo Genn, Wilfrid Hyde-White, Dennis Price, Stanley Holloway.

 

One thing that did (and does) bother me is the exact timing of the first murder just a few seconds after the victim confesses his crime. How could Mr. U.N. Owen know he would be the first and how could he know he would confess right then?

LOL, agree.

 

And one thing wrong with the plot, and this goes back to the original novel, is the killer is pretty obvious. I am not giving away anything, but from the way it is set up...

 

But I still like every version. A later remake had Orson Welles' voice as U.N. Owen.

If one already knows the plot, there's not much reason to film it three more

times. This version is okay, but nothing special. It does give some older

British character actors a chance to do their thing. The only mystery to me

was whether Hugh O'Brian was going to make it with Daliah Lavi or Shirley

Eaton or both. Mystery solved. And yes, thank goodness Fabian went first.

I wasn't much bothered by the opening theme music, it was just your typical

mid 1960s sound.
