Film details


Hercule Poirot murder mystery set on an island in the Adriatic. Poirot travels to the island to investigate a mystery surrounding a fake jewel, but before long there is a murder to be solved. Among the guests at a luxurious hotel are a gold-digging stage star who has made plenty of enemies, a couple of Broadway producers desperate to recruit her for their new show, the star's English husband with his teenage daughter, a showbiz columnist with a grudge, and a young couple whose marriage is in trouble.
