The Mirror Crack'd - 1980

Angela Lansbury takes on the role of Miss Marple.


Super sleuth Miss Marple sets about solving a mysterious death in the archetypal English village of St. Mary Mead.

The Mirror Crack'd finds Angela Lansbury (Beauty and The Beast) moving from a supporting role in Death on The Nile to centre stage, as she takes on the role of the iconic Miss Marple alongside a cast that includes Geraldine Chaplin (Doctor Zhivago), Tony Curtis (Some Like It Hot) Edward Fox (Gandhi), Rock Hudson (Pillow Talk), Kim Novak (Vertigo) and Elizabeth Taylor (Cleopatra).

Studio Canal present a newly restored edition of The Mirror Crack'd featuring new interviews with Dame Angela Lansbury, writer Barry Sandler and Richard Goodwin, and a behind the scenes stills gallery from the set.
