Oh that's a great resource! I recently rewatched the film version of the ABC Murders, and remembering the twist it was fascinating to see how cleverly it was set up all along, and how all the red herrings were weaved in.

Which one did you watch? I saw the double-episode/film version with Suchet just 2 days ago :P

This one I haven't seen yet >> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060094/ ...wonder why it got such low ratings. Poirot series with Suchet have 8,7 on IMDB >> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0094525/ :P

Yesterday I watched A Perfect Murder, a Hitchcock remake of Dial M for Murder >> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120787/ ...mainly because Suchet was in it. He was really good and it felt strange watching him without the kinky Belgian accent :P

I don't think I've ever heard Suchet without the accent (it was definitely his version that I watched). Anita Ekberg was quite famous in her day, nevertheless her film version of ABC Murders doesn't look very promising. The Suchet version works great as a mystery and the comedic elements (there's a scene with an stuffed alligator at the end) are expertly handled.
