When a wealthy old man appears to have been "frightened to death" by a cat, Miss Marple suspects one of his four relatives, all heirs to his estate, of his murder.
Like Murder Most Foul (1964), this movie was adapted from a Poirot novel, not a Miss Marple novel.
Miss Marple, I would deem it an honour if you'd at least stay the day and be my guest at the hunt.
Miss Jane Marple: I'm very sorry, Mr. Enderby, but I disapprove of blood sports.
Hector Enderby: That was a very narrow escape!
When Miss Marple first opens an upstairs door after Mr. Enderby's death, she briefly sees a cat perched on top of a chest or some sort of high furniture. The 'live' cat is obviously a stuffed prop when Miss Marple first sees it and in the next cut the cat leaps from the chest and runs past Miss Marple.
