And Then There Were None
Friday, April 24
NC Museum of Art
(1945) Directed by René Clair. Walter Houston, Barry Fitzgerald, Louis Hayward. 97 min.
Ten strangers are lured to a spooky mansion on a rocky isle, and then, just like in the nursery rhyme, they begin to die, one by one. A fine cast of character actors keeps the viewer guessing until the very end (reading the book doesn’t necessary help!).
Mystery maven Margaret Maron (Bootlegger’s Daughter, Death’s Half Acre) chooses a fine adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians to discuss the mystery of cinematic mysteries. Maron is the recipient of numerous awards for mystery writing, including the Edgar and multiple Agathas.
All films are screened in the Museum Auditorium on Fridays at 8 p.m.
