Thread Name: BS: Miss Marple
Subject: RE: BS: Miss Marple
Although I thought the Hollywood movie of "The Mirror Cracked" was dreadful, I thought Angela Lansbury did a good job as Miss Marple - much closer to the character as written than Margaret Rutherford. I have long suspected (perhaps this is common knowledge, and I just don't know) that it was this performance by Lansbury that inspired someone to cast her in "Murder, She Wrote".

The Hickson shows were great. I even loved the theme music!
