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.
As in the previous film, Murder She Said (1961), the gruff general factotum is again named Hillman.
There have been stupid murderers, you know.
Miss Jane Marple: She's a timid woman, not a stupid one.
Miss Milchrest is to inherit a painting from Mr. Enderby's sister, Cora. Cora presumably painted it herself. George Crossfield and Rosamund Shane are quarreling about a painting which belonged to Mr. Enderby. George suggests Mr. Enderby must have picked it up 30 years ago in Paris. As an art dealer George knows what that picture is worth and he wants it. But the painting is hidden by someone. Mrs. Marple seems to have the painting and sends Mr. Stringer to London with it, to get it evaluated. When Mr. Stringer returns that evening, we learn that the painting is worth at least £50.000. This same painting is somewhat later recognized by Miss Milchrest as Cora's painting.
