Movie Info

Released in Great Britain as The ABC Murders, this film stars a well-disguised Tony Randall as Agatha Christie's brilliant, insufferable Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. On its own, the plot is a good one, as Poirot investigates a series of murders, with the victims arranged alphabetically.

Critic Reviews for The Alphabet Murders

All Critics (1)

It was really as simple as ABC why this film was a dud, most of the suspense was lost in Tashlin's poorly conceived comic interpretation.

Audience Reviews for The Alphabet Murders

Tony tries but this is middling, Robert Morley would have much more sense as Poirot. Contains an amusing cameo by Margaret Rutherford and Stringer Davis as Miss Marple and her loyal sidekick.

Super Reviewer

Thou silly, corny and ultimately absolutely ridiculous, Tony Randall and Robert Morley give great performances and make this film very enjoyable.

Falls flat because of how silly it is and campy , but Tony Randall gives such a great performance that raises it. Robert Morley was also great.
