Sunday fun: 2 The Mirror Crack'd.
What fun to get up Sunday mornng, and see THE MIRROR CRACK'D on early tv. I just have to include this hilarious scene when Taylor and Novak try to out-bitch each other. For priceless camp its almost as good as that scene in VALLEY OF THE DOLLS when Helen Lawson (Susan Hayward) and Neely O'Hara (Patty Duke) meet in the powder room .... (Trash label).
THE MIRROR CRACK'D though is the clunkiest of those all-star Christies, always good for a laugh, with the '50s period detail laid on with a trowel - it lacks the wit and fun of EVIL UNDER THE SUN or DEATH ON THE NILE. Liz and Kim seem to be enjoying themselves while Hudson and Curtis seem sadly diminished, and Angela Lansbury is a very odd Miss Marple. .... (see Christie label).
