The next day Lord Edgware is found dead and all the staff at the Lord's house swear that Jane was the one who did it but witnesses at another Lord's party swear that Jane was with them.

Let me.

27

00:
03:06,850 -- 00:03:07,850

It is a pleasure.

28

00:
03:14,150 -- 00:03:18,850

Good, Mr Poirot. It is a great

privilege to make its television debut

29

00:
03:18,850 -- 00:03:21,950

here with us tonight.

Do you see much television?

30

00:
03:21,950 -- 00:03:26,750

You liked because it is full of

crimes, research

31

00:
03:26,760 -- 00:03:30,860

and much consolation, you know,

the good guys always win.

32

00:
03:31,360 -- 00:03:33,960

As news of

my clock radio.

33

00:
03:33,960 -- 00:03:35,960

that the bad guys always win.

34

00:
03:36,260 -- 00:03:37,460

Quite well, Mr Poirot.

35

00:
03:38,060 -- 00:03:41,160

Tell me has seen any movie?

from Bryan, Jake Slagel?

36

00:
03:41,160 -- 00:03:42,160

From whom?

37

00:
03:42,160 -- 00:03:43,160

Jake Slagel...

38

00:
03:43,160 -- 00:03:44,360

Is this Mr Slagel?

39

00:
03:44,760 -- 00:03:48,360

Bryan... Slagel is the character.

-Already present ourselves - if, that is.

40

00:
03:52,270 -- 00:03:55,970

No, I not very often to film.

I'm afraid...

41

00:
03:52,270 -- 00:03:55,970

the last movie that I went to see

the cinema was Casablanca;

42

00:
03:56,570 -- 00:03:59,870

I was invited to the premiere in Antwerp.

43

00:
04:00,570 -- 00:04:01,570

In Antwerp?

44

00:
04:01,570 -- 00:04:03,570

I did not know really who had

premiered in Antwerp

45

00:
04:03,970 -- 00:04:05,270

Spends much time in Belgium?

46

00:
04:05,870 -- 00:04:08,470

No, because there are very few crimes all the time.

47

00:
04:08,670 -- 00:04:12,270

I am very patriotic

I believe in Belgium very deeply,

48

00:
04:12,270 -- 00:04:14,970

but there the crime

virtually non-existent.

49

00:
04:15,470 -- 00:04:17,670

Why did something?

50

00:
04:18,770 -- 00:04:20,070

The truth, no.

51

00:
04:20,380 -- 00:04:23,580

I could have been criminal,

because it is a similar profession

52

00:
04:23,580 -- 00:04:25,580

It is the other side of the same coin.

53

00:
04:26,980 -- 00:04:31,380

Toss...Oh crime!

No, rather not.

54

00:
04:35,380 -- 00:04:39,980

Now receives the next guest,

The following guest who will be a surprise

55

00:
04:40,180 -- 00:04:42,680

Not for Mr Poirot

But if to Bryan.

56

00:
04:42,680 -- 00:04:46,280

because it is the co-star

his new movie.

57

00:
04:46,980 -- 00:04:50,780

If you give welcome, please.

To the Ms. Jane Wilkinson.

58

00:
05:03,380 -- 00:05:05,280

Hello to everyone.

59

00:
05:06,480 -- 00:05:07,780

It is so nice to be here.

60

00:
05:08,880 -- 00:05:11,580

And it is so nice...

61

00:
05:13,790 -- 00:05:15,190

Take a seat, please.

62

00:
05:18,190 -- 00:05:19,890

How do these surprised, Bryan?

63

00:
05:20,790 -- 00:05:22,590

I am fairly.

64

00:
05:23,490 -- 00:05:26,990

Well, surprise has always been my...Forte?

65

00:
05:27,690 -- 00:05:28,690

Good word.

66

00:
05:29,190 -- 00:05:32,990

But tell me, Bryan?

How does describiras, Jane?

67

00:
05:33,590 -- 00:05:38,290

Would call it unpredictable?

Llamaras it irresistible?

68

00:
05:38,490 -- 00:05:41,490

Call me... whenever you want.

69

00:
05:43,190 -- 00:05:44,190

Strange.

70

00:
05:44,190 -- 00:05:47,190

"Strange" is the word until

mysterious.

71

00:
05:47,500 -- 00:05:51,700

This young miss resembles your famous co-star, Bryan.

72

00:
05:52,300 -- 00:05:53,800

But, in fact, ladies and gentlemen,

73

00:
05:54,500 -- 00:05:56,700

I would like to look again at...

74

00:
05:59,300 -- 00:06:00,900

"Just because I'm not Bachelor.."

75

00:
06:00,900 -- 00:06:03,600

I try as if he had no

"a brain in your head".

76

00:
06:04,300 -- 00:06:07,500

The star of nightclubs

and television:

77

00:
06:07,500 -- 00:06:08,700

Charlotte Adams.
