Catchphrase: The Agatha Christie Edition

It’s been a while since I’ve tested my readers’ little grey cells and/or since I’ve induced headaches and sore eyes from squinting at a screen too much, so I thought I would post a new-to-the-blog picture quiz. Readers will see below 14 photos. Each photo is from an Agatha Christie film. However, like the TV quiz show Catchphrase most of each photo is concealed behind a number of coloured squares. I have removed certain squares and from these snapshots you have to figure out which Christie film is being shown. Unlike the TV show no further squares are going to be removed, and yes I have been annoying and avoided revealing full shots of famous faces. The films I’ve picked span a wide range of dates, though they’re all either British or American productions.

I’ll post the answers up next weekend. Good luck!

N. B. Due to an error on my part, two of the photos in this quiz come from the same Agatha Christie film.

    • I realised during the night that two of my photos come from the same AC film, so in effect out of the answers you already have, you also have one of the other ones you’re stuck on. Thought I’d let you know just so you didn’t lose too much sleep over it lol

      • I thought as much! I didn’t lose sleep over it, but when my dog got me up at 1 am I did fall back to sleep going through Christie movies in my head. But it’s ok…worked much better than sheep. And now I have an excuse to rewatch some of her movies to come up with the rest.
