When Miss Marple (Margaret Rutherford) is introduced  as the new member of a Royal Navy Trust, it takes a mere 5 minutes before a murder occurs, & as usual chief inspector Craddock (Charles 'Bud' Tingwell) does not believe Miss Marple's wild theories, having her take up her own investigations once again, that soon lead her to a stay at the school ship HMS Battledore, where of course everyone - & most of all eccentric captain Rhumstone (Lionel Jeffries) - seems suspicious. & when she at night while trying to communicate with her trusted friend Mr Stringer (Stringer Davis) via lightsignals catches a message for someone else, she uncovers an outrageous plot of break-ins done by some of the ship's students & personnel. However, this turns out to have nothing to do with the murder she investigates since the people involved in the thefts get killed off too, & the prime suspect is ... Mr Stringer. Miss Marple, knowing of course of the innocence of her friend, decides  to have him under suspicion a little longer to set a trap for the real killer - who is ... commander Breeze-Connington (William Mervyn), an old seaman who was years ago laid off by the Navy but in his eyes should be an admiral by now - so he embezzled quite a sum of money to make up for his relatively low rank & to enjoy his pension in style (he did, however, appear only very little during the movie's runtime). The trap Miss Marple has set seems to fail when inspector Craddock gets locked ion below deck & Miss Marple has to fence it out with the commander, but in the end Mister Stringer saves her just in time ...


The fourth of the Miss Marple-movies starring Margaret Rutherford is not actually based on any Agatha Christie-novel (which is just as well, since the other adaptations had only a slight resemblance with the books they were based on anyways), & it does not work all that well as a whodunit, with a much too convoluted plot, way too many characters (resulting in the fact that the actual culprit did not have all that much of an impact on the story prior to his discovery), & a solution that could be called at best co-incidental. The movie is however enjoyable as a pure comedy, with Margaret Rutherford's Miss Marple, Charles 'Bud' Tingwell's inspector, Lionel Jeffries' captain & Nicholas Parsons' police doctor continuously trying to outham each other with great relish, with most of their scenes making one forget the rather weak script anyways.
