The Summer of Christie kick-off is 6/30 when the questions go live at Bookclub Girl for And Then There Were None and before anyone says it yes I do know that this has no Poirot at all. But it is one of Christie most famous mysteries and I believe a good way to hook readers (new or old) into her writing.
In preparation I'm going to re-watch several of the movie adaptations that I own and posting some thoughts on them across social media:
- 1966 - Fabian! This is the version I rewatch most often also Sauron is Mr. Owen's voice!
- 1945 - First cinema production, available for free to download (legally) here.
- 1987 - [Desyat Negrityat] Soviet Russia version! Sticks the closest to the book
- 1989 - Starring Frank Stallone, Sly's brother...I can't take it seriously and you shouldn't either.
Having just watched the Soviet Russia version I'll be watching that second to last. Because I don't really want to rewatch the Stallone one, but I'll do it. With a lot of vodka in hand. Seriously its that bad.
And if I can find it I'll share the essays I wrote about the book back during my junior year of HS 'cause I really really love this book.
