MURDER-MYSTERY. Adapted from the story by Agatha Christie. The famous Egyptologist Sir John Willard has died unexpectedly in Egypt while excavating the tomb of the pharaoh Men-her-Ra. When other members of the expedition mysteriously die in quick succession, rumors spread that an Egyptian curse is to blame for the deaths. Lady Willard, whose son has traveled to Egypt to continue his father’s work, fears that he may be the next to die and seeks the help of famed detective Hercule Poirot. Assuring Lady Willard that he will do all that is humanly possible to protect her son from the mummy’s curse, Poirot and Hastings set sail for Egypt. After battling seasickness, Poirot finally arrives in Egypt, where he compulsively brushes dust and sand from his apparel and discovers that the abominable heat causes his beloved mustache to go limp.
