Margaret Rutherford once again dons the guise of Miss Marple, Agatha Christie’s doddery grey-haired sleuth, to solve a string of maritime murders. After a member of the board of trustees overseeing a merchant marine training vessel drops dead before he can deliver some “terribly important news”, fellow board member Marple suspects foul play and decides to pay the ship a visit. Unfortunately her arrival heralds more premature demises and the frumpy amateur detective must unmask both villain and motive before she becomes fish food herself. Set to a score which sounds like it was lifted from a game show, red herrings abound and any sense of peril fails to materializes as Rutherfords prim and proper old girl—with the body of a small tank and face of a droopy St. Bernard—fusses and goes “tsk tsk” while pulling clues out of thin air. This series of Disney-style murder mysteries may be classic (Rutherford is a darling) but after watching one or two they quickly settle into predictable tedium. A surefire cure for insomnia.

"Murder Ahoy" stars Dame Margaret Rutherford along with a wonderful cast, perfectly supported by a delightful musical score found in all four of her Miss Marple films. The energy of Rutherford is captivating. You could not make this film for today's millennials and high-paced mentality that ignores the character of life. Murder was never done with less fuss and absence of blood as in the Marple films.

Margaret Rutherford with her devoted friend, Mr. Stringer (real-life husband, Stringer Davis), risk danger at sea to investigate a suspicious death. They are an adorable pair!
