Weekend Wonders: Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple

Margaret Rutherford is one of my two favorite actresses to portray Miss Marple.  She played the starring role in the big screen movies of the 1960s: "Murder She Said"; "Murder at the Gallop"; "Murder Most Foul"; and "Murder Ahoy".  This is a video with photos from the four movies, accompanied by the theme song used in all of the movies.  Enjoy!

To view all four movies on YouTube, go to this site and do a search for each title.  While Ms. Rutherford' portrayal was very different from the Agatha Christie version of Miss Marple, her interpretation was rather like the actress herself, and is quite fun to watch!
