Synopsis: Agatha Christie’s sleuth Miss Marple (Margaret Rutherford) joins a theatrical company to get to the truth behind a murder mystery for which she has acted as a juror.

Kitty Cameo: During the course of her investigation, Miss Marple rooms at a boarding house where the actors from the theater are staying.  She is shown to her room which was previously occupied by one of the company who is now deceased.  As she is settling into the room the door of a cupboard slowly opens.  Startled, Miss Marple grabs a vase and prepares to hit whomever emerges.  Much to her surprise, a shorthaired cat is inside.
