The Mirror Crack’d

Movie Information

In Brief: A diminished budget — and other things — conspire against this attempt at a big-screen Miss Marple movie to accompany successful Hercule Poirot films. It’s not actually bad, it’s just not all that hot. The magnificently catty duels of the divas — Liz Taylor and Kim Novak — are certainly fun, but the mystery lacks zing. This excerpt was taken from a review by Ken Hanke originally posted on Jan. 15, 2013.
