Ten people, strangers to each other, are invited to a lavish estate on an island. Through a recording, their mysterious host accuses each of his "guests" of murder and proceeds to exact ''justice." The tension mounts as, one by one, the number of people are reduced through the ingenious plotting of the unseen killer. Finally, only two are left and each is uncertain as to whether or not the other is the murderer. A top cast of veteran performers bring the intricate twist of the plot to life. One of the most thrilling novels, the film climaxes at the spine-tingling conclusion. Match wits with the script as you watch a thriller that has carved its own special niche in the realm of tales of suspense and mystery.

Extremely suspenseful! I read the book many years ago and it was just as suspenseful, I was a teenager looking under my bed when I finished reading at night!
A classic who-dun-it. The characters did have some depth and the script was interesting. I liked the movie.
If you can get past the complete lack of sense shown by a house full of people who know that someone wants to kill them, "And Then There Were None" is an enjoyable enough simplification of Agatha Christie's novel (which I read long ago under the title "Ten Little Indians") for the screen. Some of the cast are better than others; fortunately, and perhaps not surprisingly, the less convincing among them are dispatched earlier in the film.
Although the voice synching is notably terrible at the beginning of the film (due, I am sure, to the source material rather than to any Fandor issue), either it improved as the film progressed or I got used to it.
I enjoyed watching "And Then There Were None"!! Look forward to watching more classics movies like this one.
Okay. Played more for laughs.
One of the best mystery movies ever!
Reminded me of Hitchcock. Had enough twists that I couldn't figure out who did it. Acting was rather good.
Excellent..melodramatic but suspenseful and scary! Kind of Film Noir with stunning scenery of the English coastline.
Great mystery, well acted and good 1940s photography.

A great old who done it!
Great and enjoyable film adaptation of one of Agatha Christie's most interesting mysteries! Simply classic!
Murder not taken too seriously made for a pleasant diversion.
ONe of the best adaptations of the Agatha Christy story, except in the book, all are killed and the epilog that explains it is in a bottle found in the sea.
