A Hercule Poirot mystery by Agatha Christie
1 review about Third Girl

A review of the DVD

  • Feb 14, 2011
Poirot is grossly overweight in this film. This is not a factor in the plot and does not distract from it, but it may disconcert some viewers.

A woman arrives in Poirot's office saying she wants to be "saved" and "may" have killed someone. She leaves in a huff declaring that Poirot is too old to help her. Both statements and her behavior are strange; they intrigue Poirot, and he decides to uncover what is bothering her.

He discovers that his friend, a female crime novelist, calls her the third girl because she is the third female to join two others in renting an apartment. He also learns that an elderly woman was found dead in the apartment building. The police think that she committed suicide, but Poirot is convinced that she was murdered. The woman died of a knife wound. The third girl had found her mother when she was a child who had committed suicide on the girl's birthday. Her mother also died of a knife wound, and she inherited a large fortune. Her father, who had abandoned her and her mother, reappeared from Australia about two years ago. He insists that she is mentally disturbed. One of her roommates agrees.

Viewers will want to discover the identity of the dead elderly woman. Who was she? Why was she killed or committed suicide? Did the third girl kill her as she believes? Is the death related in any way to her money? Is she really insane? How can Poirot solve the case?
