Despite a few small changes made to fit the different cast, the dialogue for this movie is almost word for word identical to the 1965 version. See more »
After Michel is poisoned, the killer breaks the statue at the waist.
After Elsa is strangled, the killer breaks the statue at the shoulder.
After General Salvé is stabbed, the remaining guests gather around the table on which the statues are placed. The film then cuts to an overhead shot showing two statues broken at the ankle and one broken at the waist. In the next shot, the correct statues are back, but the statue broken at the waist is now in a different position. See more »
The Locale,Direction and Updating of the classic Agatha Christie tale have one by one destroyed this adaptation of the novel.
The first version of the book,1945's And Then There Were None was a classic,the 1966 adaptation was of passing interest...even the 1989 version had it moments but this 1975 version is a botched job. Not only is the cast turning in "take the money and run" performances,they are in the wrong roles,this makes the killer obvious from the beginnig of the investigation. And one side note...the 1945 film retained the character of religous fanatic Emily Brent portrayed perfectly by Judith Anderson,each subsequent version has cut this wonderful role,replacing her with a rather uninteresting movie star (played dreadfully in this version by Stéphane Audran).
My advice: avoid this film. Read the book,then watch the 1945 version.
