MYSTERY. Adapted from the short story by Agatha Christie. While vacationing at the Grand Metropolitan Hotel in Brighton, famed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is called upon by a rich American couple to hunt down the thief who stole a priceless pearl necklace from their hotel suite. The case seems simple enough since only two people had been in the couple’s suite: a curmudgeonly hotel chambermaid and the couple’s dramatic French maid. Both suspects are questioned by police and each blames the other. Just when the police inspector thinks he has solved the case, Poirot races to uncover the identity of the clever jewel thief by conducting an experiment with his pocket watch.
