Agatha Christie

Agatha Miller was born in Torquay in 1890 to an English mother and American father; she spent her childhood and teen years mainly in Torquay in a large home called Ashfield.  Even as a child she was very imaginative and, being much younger than her sister and brother, was on her own a lot, so she told herself stories and invented characters.  Her fond remembrances of her favorite children's books and toys were memorialized in POSTERN OF FATE.  She was educated mostly at home but "finished" in Paris.  She was good at math and quite musical, and considered a career both as a concert pianist and an opera singer, but was discouraged by the teachers with whom she was studying.  Her older sister Madge had a book published but it never occurred to Agatha that she could write, until her mother suggested it when Agatha was recovering from the 'flu.  She wrote several non-mysteries which were all rejected by various publishers.  Many years later, she ascribed her first unpublished novel SNOW ON THE DESERT'S FACE to Mrs. Otterbourne, a character in DEATH ON THE NILE.

She met a young subaltern named Archie Christie and became engaged; the engagement lasted two years because World War I broke out.  They were married in 1914 on the spur of the moment when Archie was home on leave.  During the war, Agatha was a volunteer nurse for soldiers sent to Torquay to be treated for their battle wounds; later she was promoted to the dispensary, where she picked up a knowledge of poisons that was to stand her in good stead in her mystery stories.  She was instructed for her Apothecary examination by a Torquay chemist whom she later memorialized as the murderer in PALE HORSE.

A discussion with her sister Madge of the new Gaston LeRoux detective story, MYSTERY OF THE YELLOW ROOM led Madge to casually challenge Agatha to write her own mystery.  Stuck in the dispensary with time on her hands, she had the leisure to plot it out, finishing it during a holiday to Dartmoor.

THE MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR AT STYLES was rejected by various publishers before the ending was reworked at the request of the editors at Bodley Head, who published it in 1920.  She made her detective a Belgian refugee, having seen actual Belgian refugees in Torquay, although she realized early on that she should not have made him elderly.

In 1919 her marriage to Christie produced a daughter, Rosalind, who was sent to live with Agatha's sister and mother whenever Agatha gave in to her yen to travel abroad.  Archie was offered a position which involved traveling on behalf of the upcoming Empire Exhibition; Agatha accompanied him, and she and Archie surfed during this tour in South Africa and Hawaii.  The tour was led by Major Belcher who formed the basis for Sir Eustace Pedler in THE MAN IN THE BROWN SUIT, which also profited from Agatha's first hand knowledge of South Africa.

When Agatha's beloved mother died, this caused an enforced separation from Christie while Agatha sorted out the belongings at the family home in Torquay.  During this time, Christie fell in love with another woman and demanded a divorce.  Christie wrote about her childhood, first marriage and its unhappy end under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott in a novel entitled UNFINISHED PORTRAIT published in 1934.

Upon her divorce from Christie, Agatha treated herself to a trip on the Orient Express.  While visiting Ur, she discovered an interest in antiquities and archeology.  Returning the following year, she met Max Mallowan, an archeologist, who became her second husband in 1930.

MURDER AT THE VICARAGE was the first MISS MARPLE.  The character suggested itself to Agatha from the sister of  Dr. Sheppard, a character from THE MURDER OF ROGER ACKROYD, and also had some characteristics of Agatha's grandmother.  In her autobiography, Agatha writes:  Miss Marple was born at the age of 65 to 70, which, as with Poirot, proved unfortunate, because she was going to have to last a long time in my life.

The idea for LORD EDGWARE DIES came to Agatha after seeing Ruth Draper perform her one-woman show.  She wrote it while helping Max with the dig at Nineveh.

She worked again in the dispensary during World War II, and gave up several of her houses for use by the Admiralty or to house children during the time of the evacuations while London was being bombed.

She wrote non-mysteries under the name Mary Westmacott.  Her favorites of her own books were CROOKED HOUSE, ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE and THE MOVING FINGER.  Her least favorite was THE MYSTERY OF THE BLUE TRAIN.  Although primarily known as the author of mystery novels, she has the unique distinction of having written the world's longest running play, THE MOUSETRAP, which first appeared on the radio as THREE BLIND MICE, commissioned by the BBC as a birthday treat for Queen Mary in 1947.  The play has been running continuously in London's West End since 1952.

Agatha Christie was awarded the CBE in 1956 and was made a Dame Commander of the British Empire in 1971.


I was still a child when I discovered Agatha Christie. Back in the late 1950s you could buy a paperback book for 35 or 40 cents at Woolworth's.  The covers were often delightfully lurid.  I was already an Anglophile and the British settings of most of these books appealed to me.

One of the things which makes Christie mysteries universally appealing, I believe, is that they are not about unlikable characters.  When you watch today's mysteries on TV, such as MURDER, SHE WROTE or MONK, the person murdered is often odious and nearly everyone is a suspect because they all had a reason to hate the victim, but while this was sometimes the case in a Christie book, most often it was not, and part of the mystery that the reader (or Poirot or Miss Marple) had to unravel was the motive for the crime.

Another appealing aspect of the books is that they are so readable. You don't have to go back over a paragraph because you didn't understand what was being conveyed.  There are no obscure words which conceal an important clue (something that Ruth Rendell/Barbara Vine used occasionally).  There is not a lot of description, architectural detail of buildings or comparisons of people to famous portraits (all of which Ruth Rendell does).  There is mostly dialogue.

On the other hand, Christie often withholds important information from the reader or conceals it in a way that is actually preferable, I find, to that heavy handed close-up in MURDER, SHE WROTE of a desk drawer (for example), which you know Jessica Fletcher is going to explain in the closing minutes.

Perhaps the most appealing aspect of her writing is that frequently the murderer is truly the last person you might suspect. And this is generally achieved so cleverly that there is no sense that, despite the fact that Christie may have withheld information or concealed a clue, she has cheated at all.  One of the joys of her plotting is the way she persuades you that first this suspect, then that one, had the motive and opportunity, before finally revealing the actual murderer was someone else entirely.

She also achieved uniqueness in several of her novels, coming up with plot devices that no one had thought of before and no one dared to do after, such as the murderer actually being the narrator, the murderer being ALL the suspects, the murderer turning out to be the very person the reader probably liked best and who had an unshakable alibi, an intentional murder being concealed in a series of seemingly random murders, a murder being done during a bridge game by one of the four players, a whittling down of people trapped in isolation with the murderer turning out to be one of the earlier victims.

Another thing Christie was famous for was her use of poison as the means of committing murder. This comes from her own experience during World War I in a drug dispensary.  She also seems somewhat unique for providing a "cast of characters" or list of suspects in the front of many of her novels.

One of the delights of many of the Christie stories is their period settings, so wonderfully visualized with loving detail by London Weekend Television in the series POIROT made with David Suchet, and the BBC series MISS MARPLE made with Joan Hickson.  The lovely thatched cottages, period cars and trains, fashionable clothing, art deco details and other trappings British TV does so well.  Christie books set in the ‘60s generally lack this charm.

Finally, Christie plots are always tasteful; although many of her books are technically about serial killers, that is, someone who murders several people, there is none of the gleeful lingering over gory and sadistic forensic details that characterizes the popular serial killer novels of modern times.

As I reread these Christie books as an adult, I have come across various odd facts which I had not noticed before, such as that Poirot is Catholic; Miss Marple as a teenager was "finished" in France.  I also notice that characters in one novel, such as Major Despard, sometimes show up in another, in a more minor role. It's clear that Christie invented the character of Ariadne Oliver as an alter ego for herself; an apple-eating author whose Finnish detective she now rues because she knows nothing of Finland and its customs. But probably Christie herself was more like the gentile Miss Marple (who, like Christie, was mainly educated at home with governesses), whose mild exterior hid a cunning wit and unbeatable common sense.

In her autobiography published in 1977, she wrote:  I like sunshine, apples, almost any kind of music, railway trains, numerical puzzles and anything to do with numbers, going to the sea, bathing and swimming, silence, sleeping, dreaming, eating, the smell of coffee, lilies of the valley, most dogs and going to the theatre.

It boggles the mind to think that when she was young, there were no passports and bureaucracy of that type; during her lifetime she saw the introduction of the automobile and the airplane.  In her youth, women were required to bathe at segregated beaches in bathing costumes that covered their arms and legs.  Despite all the difficulties of travel which often required days on trains and the primitive state of medicine in foreign countries, she was a world traveler.

Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language with another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time and in any language, outsold by only the Bible and Shakespeare.  Agatha Christie is about to break new ground in the new millennium as her novels become available as ebooks and updated versions will be made into new films.

PLAYS:   Writing in CURTAIN UP: AGATHA CHRISTIE: A LIFE IN THE THEATRE (Harper 2015), Julius Green’s thoroughly researched book, he points out that Agatha is one of the most successful female playwrights of all time, and the only one to have 3 simultaneous West End hits (MOUSETRAP, WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION and SPIDER’S WEB).

1930 BLACK COFFEE An original play with Poirot, Hastings and Japp regarding a stolen formula and a murdered physicist.  Per Wiki, a brief run at the Embassy Theatre from 12/3/30 until 12/20/30; reopened at the St Martin's Theatre 4/9/31 through 5/1/31; transferred to the Wimbledon Theatre on 5/4/31 and moved to the Little Theatre 5/11/31, finally closing there on 6/13/31, for a total of 67 performances.
1943 TEN LITTLE NIGGERS While the title is politically incorrect, it was set on Nigger Island and somewhat justified the word, tied into the nursery rhyme.  260 performances in the West End from 10/17/43, until the St. James theatre was bombed; per Wiki, it then transferred to the Cambridge Theatre on 2/29/44 through 5/6/44, when it returned to the restored St James on 5/9/44 and finally closed on 7/1/44; 426 performances on Broadway under the title TEN LITTLE INDIANS.
1945 APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH Set mainly at and near Petra; notable for being one of the most radical reworkings of a novel Christie ever did, not only eliminating Hercule Poirot from the story, but also changing the identity of the killer.  Per Wiki, opened 1/29/45 at the King's Theatre, transferring on 3/31/45 to the Piccadilly Theatre, closing on 5/5/45 after just 42 performances in the West End.
1945 HIDDEN HORIZON Eventually renamed MURDER ON THE NILE, based on DEATH ON THE NILE, but excising Poirot; in the West End opened 3/19/46 at the Ambassadors Theatre and ran for 6 weeks, only 12 performances on Broadway.
1951 THE HOLLOW A mock murder turns into the real thing; Poirot again excised;  per Wiki opened at the Fortune Theatre 6/7/51, transferred to the Ambassadors Theatre on 10/8/51, for a total of 376 performances in the West End.
1952 THE MOUSETRAP Based on a BBC radio play commissioned for the birthday of Queen Mary; longest running straight play in the world.  Per Wiki, opened 11/25/52 at the Ambassadors Theatre through 3/23/74, when it immediately transferred to the St Martin's Theatre, next door, reopening on 3/25/74.  The London run has now exceeded 25,000 performances.  No Broadway production has ever been licensed.
1953 WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION Based on a 1925 short story entitled TRAITOR HANDS that had no courtroom scene.  When it was adapted as a play, lawyers were consulted to make sure legal procedure was correct, including the actor Leo Genn, who had a Cambridge law degree.  Per Wiki, it opened 10/28/53 at the Wintergarden Theatre, racking up 458 performances in the West End and 645 on Broadway at Henry Miller's Theatre.
1954 SPIDER'S WEB Per Wiki, opened 12/13/54 at the Savoy Theatre, where it ran for 744 performances in the West End.  A comedy thriller with hidden rooms in a remote country house.
1956 TOWARDS ZERO According to Julius Green (CURTAIN UP: AGATHA CHRISTIE: A LIFE IN THE THEATRE, Harper 2015), this was originally an adaptation by thriller writer Gerald Verner.  When the producer failed to mount a production after many renewals of the rights, Christie acquired the rights to the play and made a few changes, but for the sake of box office draw and the fact that it was based on her novel, it was advertised as largely by her.  Per Wiki, it opened 9/4/56 at the St. James Theatre and ran for 205 performances; murder at a house party.
1958 VERDICT Originally titled NO FIELDS OF AMARANTH, while this contained a murder, it was committed in full view of the audience, and no detection or thriller elements were involved.  Green (CURTAIN UP: AGATHA CHRISTIE: A LIFE IN THE THEATRE, Harper 2015) summarized it as "a principled but misguided male idealist wreaks unintentional havoc on those around him."  It opened 5/22/58 at the Strand Theatre and ran for 36 performances in the West End.
1958
THE UNEXPECTED GUEST Per Wiki, opened at the Duchess Theatre on 8/12/58 and ran in the West End 612 performances.
1960 GO BACK FOR MURDER FIVE LITTLE PIGS, again excising Poirot; per Wiki, it opened 3/23/60 at the Duchess Theatre for only 37 performances.  A murder 16 years previously is investigated by the dead man's daughter, who seeks to clear the name of her late mother who was found guilty of the crime.
1962 RULE OF THREE 3 unconnected one-act plays:  THE RATS, in which a couple is trapped in a room with the body of the woman's husband; AN AFTERNOON AT THE SEASIDE, a comedy involving a stolen emerald necklace, and THE PATIENT, a mystery thriller about a paralyzed woman who faces her possible attacker through the use of a mechanical device which allows her to answer questions; per Wiki, it opened 12/20/62 at the Duchess Theatre and ran for 92 performances.
1971 FIDDLERS THREE Based on Agatha's own aggravations with Inland Revenue, this comedy was originally called THE MORTAL COIL and toured under the title FIDDLER'S FIVE.  It opened 8/1/72 at the Yvonne Aranud Theatre, but did not transfer to a regular West End house.
1979
AKHNATON Per Wiki, first produced under the title AKHNATON AND NEFERTITI in 1979 in New York.

 I've recently (2017) acquired AGATHA CHRISTIE:  MURDER IN FOUR ACTS (Virgin Books 1990) by Peter Haining, and based on his research (and imdb), have compiled below a list of Christie adaptations in film and on TV.  There are too many MISS MARPLEs with Geraldine McEwan and Julia McKenzie and POIROTs with David Suchet to list individually, so I have just provided links to the TV series for those.
