This British production stars Claudette Colbert as a socialite who marries wealthy plantation owner Jack Hawkins. The newlyweds move to Hawkins' plantation in Malaya, where she quickly bores of her dead-end existence and harbors dreams of extramarital affairs. When the natives prove restless, however, Colbert loyally stays by her husband's side and helps him defend his property. Outpost in Malaya was originally released in Great Britain as The Planter's Wife. The film represented Claudette Colbert's first non-Hollywood film project--though hardly her last.......

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie and first published in the UK by William Collins & Sons in June 1926 and later in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company in the same year. It features Hercule Poirot as the lead detective. The UK edition retailed at seven shillings and sixpence. It is one of Christie's best (perhaps the best) known and most controversial novels, its innovative twist ending having a significant impact on the genre. The short biography of Christie which is included in the present UK printings of all of her books states that this novel is her masterpiece. Howard Haycraft in his seminal 1941 work Murder for Pleasure included the novel in his "cornerstones" list of the most influential crime novels ever written. The character Caroline Sheppard was later acknowledged by Christie as a possible precursor to her famous detective Miss Marple. The book is set in the fictional village of King's Abbott in England. It is narrated by Dr. James Sheppard, who becomes Poirot's assistant (a role filled by Captain Hastings in several other Poirot novels). The story begins with the death of Mrs. Ferrars, a wealthy widow who is rumoured to have murdered her husband. Her death is initially believed to be suicide until Roger Ackroyd, a widower who had been expected to marry Mrs. Ferrars, dies. The suspects include Mrs. Cecil Ackroyd, Roger's neurotic hypochondriac sister-in-law who has accummulated personal debts through extravagant spending, her niece Flora, Major Blunt, a big-game hunter, Geoffrey Raymond, Ackroyd's personal secretary, Ralph Paton, Ackroyd's stepson and another person with heavy debts, Parker, a snooping butler, and Ursula Bourne, a parlourmaid with an uncertain history who resigned her post the afternoon of the murder. The initial suspect is Ralph, who is engaged to Flora and stands to inherit his stepfather's fortune. Several critical pieces of evidence seem to point to Ralph. Poirot, who has just moved to the town, begins to investigate at Flora's behest. A television version was produced in 2000 for Britain's ITV1 network. It starred David Suchet as Poirot, Philip Jackson as Chief Inspector Japp (who does not appear in the original novel), Oliver Ford Dav
