This is the world famous play by the best mystery writer ever- Agatha Christie! Never made into a movie by request of the playwright herself, the special twist ending is a secret playgoers have kept since the show opened in London in 1952, where the play celebrated its 25,000th performance in 2012.
A group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives when another is killed. To understand the murderer's pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, and rattles a lot of skeletons and keeps the audience guessing until the end!
