It was the perfect vacation - and nearly the perfect crime
When a shrewish stage star is found strangled at a posh island resort, detective Hercule Poirot (Peter Ustinov) is called in to investigate. But as the brilliant Belgian learns, it isn't a matter of who would want the diva dead... but who wouldn't? As he follows the twists and turns of clues and motives, Poirot soon discovers that even among the rich and famous, murder never takes a holiday! Maggie Smith, Roddy McDowall, Diana Rigg, James Mason, Jane Birkin, Colin Blakely and Sylvia Miles costar in this treacherous tale featuring classic songs by Cole Porter.
