You found the eighth little soldier boy! If you’ve come this far, you should
congratulate yourself on your sleuthing skills!
There are a lot of other notable adaptations of And Then There Were None. Christie’s own stage adaptation is not the
only play version of the story. Kevin
Elyot, who scripted episodes of Agatha
Christie’s Poirot and Marple,
wrote his own adaptation, which was produced in 2005. This version kept the book’s original ending,
and was notable for including an elaborate shifting art-deco set and particularly
graphic deaths, including projectile vomiting after poisoning.
A 1965 Bollywood musical Gumnaam
was also loosely based on And Then There
Were None, with the crimes and characterizations changed, and numerous songs
and dance numbers integrated into the plot.
Notably, the ending of this movie is one of the happiest of any
adaptation of And Then There Were None,
with a surprisingly large number of survivors.
One more word has been scribbled on the base of the

these names point towards the Mystery Man’s true identity?
