Released:
1945
Rating:
Not Available

And Then There Were None is a film adaptation of Agatha Christie's most famous story. The tiny Indian Island (off the English coast) is a bare rock, save for one luxurious house, whose current occupant, Mr. U.N. Owen, invites seven people who have never met him to spend a weekend there. He also hires a secretary and two servants through an agency - they haven't met him, either. On arriving, the visitors find Mr. Owen absent, but go ahead with dinner, and, after the meal, a loudspeaker announces without warning that all ten of them have, in the past, committed murder without being punished. One by one, the ten begin to die in various horrible ways, eventually realising that "Mr. Owen" is one of them. This is the first and most famous of the several versions of the classic tale, directed by Rene Clair more as a black comedy than a suspense horror story.
