Com raras exceções, eu acho que o cinema trata mal AGATHA CHRISTIE, a dama inglesa que nasceu em um 15 de setembro de 1890 e faleceu em 1976.

Há uma obra prima baseada nos livros delas, TESTEMUNHA DE ACUSAÇÃO (WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION – 1957), de Billy Wilder, com Sir Charles Laughton, Marlene Dietrich e Tyrone Power, certamente um dos melhores courtroom dramas de todos os tempos.

Tem um outro excelente filme ASSASSINATO NO EXPRESSO DO ORIENTE (MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS – 1973), de Sidney Lumet, com Albert Finney, Jacqueline Bisset, Sean Connery, Vanessa Redgrave, Ingrid Bergman, Anthony Perkins e muitos outros.

Mas, nas centenas de outros filmes e séries sobre os livros com Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple e os crimes da velha dama inglesa, muita porcaria chegou às telas.

Na minha opinião, AGATHA CHRISTIE merecia muito mais da sétima arte.

 

With rare exceptions, I think the movies treated very bad AGATHA CHRISTIE, the English lady who was born in a September 15th, 1890 and died in 1976 .

There is a masterpiece based on one of her books, WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION – 1957, by Billy Wilder , with Sir Charles Laughton , Marlene Dietrich and Tyrone Power, certainly one of the best courtroom dramas of all time .

It has also another excellent movie MURDER IN THE ORIENT EXPRESS – 1973, by Sidney Lumet, with Albert Finney , Jacqueline Bisset , Sean Connery , Vanessa Redgrave , Ingrid Bergman , Anthony Perkins and many others.

But among hundreds of other films and tv series on the books with Hercule Poirot , Miss Marple and the crimes of the old English lady , a lot of crap hit the screens.

In my opinion, AGATHA CHRISTIE deserved much of the seventh art .
