THIS EVENING’S FILM IS : AND THEN THERE WERE NONE (1945 B/W 97m PG Cert). 

And Then There Were None is a 1945 film adaptation of Agatha Christie‘s best-selling mystery[3] novel of the same name, directed by René Clair.

The cast featured Barry Fitzgerald, Walter Huston, Louis Hayward, Roland Young, June Duprez, Mischa Auer, C. Aubrey Smith, Judith Anderson, Richard Haydn and Queenie Leonard as the people stranded on the island.

The film won the Golden Leopard and the Best Direction Award at the Locarno International Film Festival.

Eight people, all total strangers to each other, are invited to a small, isolated island off the coast of Devon, England, by a Mr. and Mrs. Owen.  Ferried over by a sailor called Narracott, they settle in at a mansion tended by two newly hired servants, Thomas and Ethel Rogers, but their hosts are absent. When the guests sit down to dinner, they notice the centerpiece, ten figurines of Indians in a circle. A fterward, Thomas Rogers puts on a gramophone record, from which a voice accuses them all of murder.

This classic film will be preceded by a short powerpoint presentation by film buff and UGT technician Chris Leach, who’ll be giving an upbeat glimpse into who’s who in the film, what impact it made at the time, and what to look out for.

Tickets: £4.
