For more than a century, Agatha Christie has been thrilling readers with her classic mystery stories as well as dark thrillers that explore the heart of evil such as And Then There Were None and Endless Night. Christie has also been a huge part of the world’s movie and television culture with more than 200 adaptations made from her stories.
Teresa Peschel watched and reviewed 201 adaptations, from the German silent movie Adventures, Inc. (1929) to See How They Run and Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? (2022). Each one was rated for fidelity to the original material and its overall quality. Each review takes up two pages and is accompanied by a banner image, six cast photos, a list of the major actors, the locations where they were filmed.
Foreign movies with English subtitles from India, France, Russia, China, Japan, and Germany are also represented.
Finally, there are eight movies in which the fictional Agatha Christie appears. Watch her debate Hercule Poirot about killing him in Curtain, battle a space wasp with Doctor Who, and plot to kill her husband’s mistress.
