Interesting but not brilliant.

This is cut down version of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd so it cuts quite a few things out. The acting is good apart from when Orsen Welles does Hercule Poirot his portrail of him is terrible the other character's he plays are good and Orson Welles is a good actor. I don't know how he got Poirot so wrong. The stupid breaks for Campbells Chicken Soup the sponsor of the show are ridiculous but not to intrusive as a lot of American Radio shows can normally be, how did the American audience enjoy radio with all the interruptions.

OW is a legend

Excellent performance by OW. Excellent radio adaptation of Christie's book. Captured the essence of the characters. Buy it.
