The Mirror Crack'd (1981)

Film details


An Agatha Christie murder mystery featuring Miss Marple. A Hollywood film unit arrives in Miss Marple's quaint English village of St Mary Mead to shoot a film of Mary Queen of Scots. The star actress, Marina Gregg, has been absent from the screen for some time, following a breakdown, but her husband Jason Rudd, who is directing the film, promises this will be her big comeback. Wily producer Fenn, vain co-star Lola, Rudd's production secretary Ella and others come under suspicion when a mysterious death occurs in the village, and Miss Marple's nephew, Inspector Dermot Craddock, finds his knowledge of films comes into its own as he interviews the suspects.
