Murder, Marple and Me archiveBefore Miss Marple, Margaret Rutherford was well known and much loved as a comic actress. She was an unlikely choice for the role that she reluctantly took on, the character that has made her eternally and internationally famous. Legendary mystery author Agatha Christie never wanted the Miss Marple novels taken to the screen at all, and was disappointed when Margaret Rutherford was given the job. But what tragic scandal was revealed that led them to put aside their mutual distaste and develop a touching friendship? The intriguing and sometimes salacious world of the British film industry in the 1960s is the setting for a remarkable dramatic story about two of the nation's most influential women in the arts at that time.
