A "second draft" of this script for Grafton and Humphrey's adaptation for television of Christie's 1964 novel, exhibiting a considerable number of revisions made over an unusually extended period of pre-production gestation. The production was directed by Robert M. Lewis, and starred Helen Hayes as Miss Marple. Grafton's role in this adaptation of Christie's work represents an appealing confluence of talents, undertaken in the same year as the publication of her 'A' IS FOR ALIBI.
