Movies The Mirror Crack’d (1980, Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor) Published 3 months ago on November 15, 2018 Based on Agatha Christie’s 1962 novel ELIZABETH TAYLOR heads up an all-star cast in this twisting tale of deception, blackmail and, of course, murder. It all happens when an American film production descends on the genteel setting of a small English village – a village, coincidentally, where Miss Jane Marple (ANGELA LANSBURY) has a cottage. All the cast appear to be having a fine time as they spoof not only the making of movies, but also the public perception of their screen personas. Taylor in particular enjoys the verbal sparring, with Variety noting that she ‘has an uproarious good time as she trades bitchy insults with KIM NOVAK. Adroit support performances are given by TONY CURTIS, ROCK HUDSON as Taylor’s husband and director, and GERALDINE CHAPLIN.’ production details UK | 105 minutes | 1980 Director: Guy Hamilton Writers: Jonathan Hales, Barry Sandler (based on the novel The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side by Agatha Christie) cast Angela Lansbury as Miss Jane Marple Geraldine Chaplin as Ella Zielinsky Tony Curtis as Martin N.
