Re: Kenneth Branagh vs Agatha Christie

My thought exactly. Christie in the 4th Round knockout.

I only like that Branagh is making the Poirot movies solely to hopefully get people to read the books. I love the book series. His movies arenít bad and at the very least entertaining.

The way the OP presents poll questions and choices, I think he has a future as a GOP pollster.

I don't know what a GOP is but, thank you, I try my best.

I hope my question was not too much tainted with my hatred of Kenneth Branagh...

Well agree in a fist fight, Agatha in a bare knuckle fist fight. She's right up there with Jane Goodall in that department. I however like Branagh's take and look forward to Death on the Nile. Others can remain in denial. Get it?

I think it's worth pointing out that 1978's Death on the Nile is no cinematic masterpiece.

Don't get me wrong, I'll still go see it...

... I'm an Agatha Christie hardcore fan and, if I don't see it, I won't be able to bitch on Branagh :P

Other than Ustinov, that was a great cast...

Did Albert Finney have something better going on at the time that kept him from reprising Poirot?

Per IMDB...

Albert Finney was initially asked to reprise his role as Poirot from Murder on the Orient Express (1974). However, he had found the make-up he had to wear for the first movie very uncomfortable in the hot interior of the train, and on realizing that he would have to undergo the same experience, this time in temperatures exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius), he declined the role.
