AND THEN THERE WERE NONE (1945)

If you're going to buy this one, buy the one I'm showing you here.  The others available are from grainy bad prints-- this one is stellar.

AND THEN THERE WERE NONE (1945)
Directed by Rene Clair
Barry Fitzgerald, Walter Houston, Roland Young

Based on Agatha Christie's TEN LITTLE INDIANS

This movie doesn't get enough credit-- I've seen the big ones, Gone with the Wind, Casablanca, Citizen Kane, yadda yadda yadda-- this one stands with the best of them and takes it's all star cast and absolutely KNOCKS it out of the park.

With a dark sense of humor that would make Charles Addams or Bret Herholz giggle, this story about a group of strangers called together to an old castle in the middle of a lake starts fast with the death of the first character and races through it's conclusion so fast that you'll need to hold on.  Atmospherically shot so you'll get as many chills as you will laughs out of this one.

Five stars-- if you dug Arsenic and Old Lace you'll dig this one.
