Overview
As Hercule Poirot (Peter Ustinov) enjoys a luxurious cruise down the Nile, a newlywed heiress is found murdered on board. Soon, every elegant passenger is a prime suspect.

Thrilling performances from an all-star lineup including Jane Birkin, Bette Davis, Mia Farrow, Angela Lansbury, David Niven and Maggie Smith round out this chilling mystery filmed on location in Egypt.
