Murder at the Gallop (1963)
This is one of a series of competent murder mysteries directed by George Pollock based on the Agatha Christie character, Miss Marple. Margaret Rutherford stars as the grey-haired, wily sleuth who will not give up until all the pieces of a puzzle have been neatly put in place. This time around, an old village recluse is found dead and everyone except Miss Marple believes he had a heart attack. She is suspicious because four members of the dead man's family stand to benefit from his death, especially when a highly valuable painting is added into the kitty. As she follows her instincts and logic, a few more murders eliminate the same number of suspects, and Miss Marple is compelled to lend haste to her investigation before someone else turns up dead. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Murder at the Gallop
Enjoyable and competently made standard whodunit in the Miss Marple series.
The story follows the general pattern set forth in the first movie.... The major difference is that this one is a bit more amusing than the first.
As usual, Rutherford's Miss Marple is a plus.
Splendid whodunit with Rutherford in top form.
