Once the great lady of detective fiction, Agatha Christie, visited a department store in London. She was horrified to find that her last year’s clothes were tight and she urgently needed to buy clothes for a trip. The reception of the saleswoman was extremely discouraging, since she referred her directly to the extra large sizes, the author, with a strong dose of self-sarcasm, said: “Ah, this awful extra large! What a humiliation to be extra large! And even more humiliating for others to see immediately that you are extra large! ”
Agatha was very strange, terribly hardworking, very social, well-traveled, very prolific. He has written over sixty detective novels, nineteen plays and six short stories under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott. He created two amazing literary characters. Poirot and the eternally Miss Marple. The latter is an indirect tribute to the “poor old women”, to the anonymous women of the provinces who did not have a family, did not gain professional recognition, did not dazzle with their natural beauty. The plump and selfish Belgian detective expresses – among other things – Christie’s cosmopolitanism. She succeeds in establishing him as a national hero in Great Britain. A guy from Continent, as her compatriots disparagingly call mainland Europe.
“Crime on the Orien Express” is one of the most famous and fascinating mystery novels, which revolves around the efforts of Hercule Poirot to solve a murder case on the famous train.
It was in 1974 that the fatal train first traveled to the cinema, with Sidney Lumet’s “Crime on the Orien Express” starring Albert Finey as Hercule Poirot, Lorin Bacall as Hubbard and Vanessa R. Bergman, Sean Connery, Jacqueline Bisse and Anthony Perkins. Together they make up a brilliant cast of suspects…
Agatha Christie left us a voluminous library of fairy tales for older children, the best anxiolytic for our turbulent times. After forty-six years of marriage to her second husband – archaeologist Max Maluan – the great writings say: “An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can find, because the older she gets, the more interesting he finds her.”
