| One, Two, Buckle My Shoe
The director makes some visual flourishes such as using newsreel footage at the beginning, some scenes set in India and little girls playing hopscotch.

We even see a man get shot dead which is later revealed as the Harley Street dentist, Dr Morley killed in his surgery. He also happens to be Poirot's dentist and the police think his death is suicide after he gave a patient from India, Mr Amberiotis a fatal overdose.

Poirot sees links between Dr Morley's other patients. A wealthy banker Alastair Blunt, a yobbish blackshirt Frank Carter, the boyfriend of Dr Morley's assistant and Mabelle Sainsbury Seale, a former actress who toured India and had once met Blunt.

The film is a multi layered mystery which requires a long explanation from Poirot during the reveal. It is complicated but also in some ways nonsensical. The murderer has far from planned the perfect murder but rather take some outrageous risks.
