Which movie! Watching 'Sleeping Murder "frightens me more than any other film
Miss Marple, mainly due to the order. The version with Joan Hickson
was much, much better than with Geraldine Mcewan,
mainly because the manager stuck to the plot and not add a silly
romance between the hero and his assistant, presumably to heat
the heart of the audience. I thought that the house was used only right, and
gradual tension caused by new discoveries (some horrible)
added an emotion to the plot. The actress was found with the main character of a genuine Damisela
in danger and her husband loyal and dedicated. One of the few films
frightened me.
Adaptations of 1980 starring Joan Hickson are partly the slow
modern standards. This was done in the last golden age of television
before it was ruined by too many channels and the advent of MTV
attention - which has affected, unfortunately, all of us, I fear. This version
is lovingly prepared with delicious period details.

Although, in his slow, this version is not to build sufficiently different
suspects as threatening, is a good version that keeps
quite faithful to the book. Geraldine Alexander is excellent as Gwenda
to my ears and makes a super New Zealand accent. John Brown is a trainer-
let-down as unconvincing animatronic her husband, dressed gent
the vendor styles of the time, but too mannered
Elocution its perfect. Joan Hickson does its thing very well as usual.

It is interesting (if depressing) to compare this with parody
version starring Geraldine Mcewan, where the plot has been mangled -
illegible and - beyond recognition.
