Warner Archive New Releases Include Miss Marple Mysteries
Warner Archive is celebrating its 9th birthday with some great new additions to its vaults. The DVD experts now encompasses over 3000 titles on DVD and Blu-ray, spanning over one hundred years of film and television history! Having come into the world on March 23, 2009 with just 150 made-to-order feature films, Warner Archive has grown into the on demand video publisher they are today, expanding from just feature films to releasing a whole world of entertainment found inside the Warner vaults: shorts, made-for-TV movies, mini-series, animated shows, full seasons of TV shows and more. Many titles previously unavailable! Including some mystery titles much beloved by me.
Murder, She Said (1962) is back on DVD. British character titan Margaret Rutherford was the first screen queen to bring Agatha Christie's dowager detective to life in a series of mystery movies that delighted movie-goers in the sixties. The first in the series sees Miss Marple tackling a train-set act of terror. Based on Christie's "4:50 from Paddington." 16x9 Widescreen
Murder at the Gallop (1963) is also back on DVD. The great Robert Morley assists in this mystery based on Christie's "After the Funeral." Miss Marple witnesses an elderly recluse fall down a flight of stairs and die which she believes it's murder, even though the authorities label the death an accident. But the number of suspects dwindles as the body count rises, and only Miss Marple will be able to reveal a vicious killer. 16x9 Widescreen
Murder Ahoy (1964) back on DVD! Miss Marple investigates when a fellow board member of an organization that mentors troubled juveniles is found dead. The authorities rule death by natural causes, but the spinster sleuth suspects otherwise. Now, at sea aboard the ship the organization uses to train the teens, Miss Marple discovers a finishing school for young thieves. 16x9 Widescreen
And, you guessed it, Murder Most Foul (1965) is back on DVD. Miss Marple causes a mistrial when she remains the sole juror opposing a guilty verdict for Harold Taylor in the murder of his landlady. Rather than settle for a new trial, Marple investigates! And when the clues lead her to believe that the landlady was blackmailing someone in a rundown theatre company, she auditions for a part. Based on Christie's "Mrs. McGinty's Dead." 16x9 Widescreen.
