Peter Ustinov began his long association with the Hercule Poirot character
of murder mystery novelist Agatha Christie with this lavish but financially
disappointing follow-up to the popular Murder on the Orient Express (1974).
During a luxurious pleasure cruise down the Nile aboard a lavish vessel
populated with wealthy passengers, widely despised heiress and home wrecker
Linnet Ridgeway (Lois Chiles) is murdered. Also aboard is famed Belgian
detective Poirot (Ustinov) and his taciturn traveling companion, Colonel Race
(David Niven). Poirot undertakes an investigation into Ridgeway's killing. Among
the colorful suspects are Salome (Angela Lansbury) and Rosalie Otterbourne
(Olivia Hussey), Doctor Bessner (Jack Warden), Mrs. Van Schuyler (Bette Davis),
Miss Bowers (Maggie Smith), and Jacqueline De Bellefort (Mia Farrow). As more
bodies pile up, however, it appears that nearly everyone aboard has a motive.
The script for Death on the Nile (1978) was adapted by Anthony Shaffer, the
writer of Sleuth (1972) and the identical twin brother of Amadeus (1984) author
