Death on the Nile

Death on the Nile (1978)

2 corrected entries

Corrected entry: Several times, when Poirot explains that someone could have been the murderer, we see scenes in which someone is peeking through the window and observes when Jackie "shoots" Simon in the leg. The distance between Jackie and Simon varies frequently. It's particularly apparent when Salome Otterbourne "peeks" through the window, when Jackie and Simon are almost at arm's length, vs. the first time (when it really happens), when they are maybe a couch length away from each other.

Correction: The scenes each unfold with subtle differences because they aren't of the actual event, but rather Poirot's version at that time.

Corrected entry: Filming stopped every day at noon because the heat reched temperatures of over 130 degrees F.

Correction: You can see by the almost complete absence of shadows in some scenes (in particular, the Karnak Temple scene) that some scenes were shot at and around noon.

Mistakes

In the scene where Bette Davis has lost her shawl there is a shot of her and Maggie Smith from far away. They talk about the time and in the background Angela Lansbury is drinking. She puts down her glass and leans her head on her hand. Then the shot changes to a close-up of Bette Davis and Maggie Smith and you can see Angela Lansbury in the background, with the glass in her hand, just about to take a drink.

Trivia

The cast were told they could not have their own dressing rooms so Angela Lansbury, Maggie Smith and Bette Davis all shared a room.
