Pretty good. Not what I expected. The plot is loosely based on Agatha Christie's "Mrs McGinty's Dead"; however this film version has Miss Marple in the detective role, rather than Poirot. The filmmaker's did a very good job of eliminating the many unnecessary plot elements from the original Christie story, and sort of Reader's Digest condensed for this film version. Only the important parts remain. If you've ever read the convoluted and drawn-out plot in "Mrs McGinty's Dead", you understand why I say "all's well that ends well". While the other acting in this film is mostly mediocre, Margaret Rutherford (playing Miss Marple) is a joy to behold. She holds the complete attention of the viewer. A very dynamic actress, albeit a bit of a sand-bagger. You don't realize what's she up too, then wham!. If you're in the mood for a well-executed 90 minute mystery, recommended.

"Murder at the gallop" also stars the portly but personable Robert Morley and the dramatic actress Flora Robson. Flora Robson was no beauty but her acting skills were sought after. Robert Morley was probably the fattest boy on the block and never had a waist line. Yet we all liked Morley and his passing took something from British film that has not bee replaced. Margaret Rutherford displays wonderful energy and mental vigor that also has not been equaled by anyone since Margaret stepped away from the screen. Stringer Davis intrigues me. Davis maybe have been considered an actor but actors are expected to play people other than themselves. Davis was too honest not to be Davis. I wish I knew him personally.
