Les Petits Meurtres d’Agatha Christie (x) is probably my favourite Agatha Christie adaptation with David Suchet’s Poirot (and a lingering nostalgic-tinted fondness for Ustinov’s Death on the Nile). The two (original) characters come from Petits meurtres en famille (x), a TV adaptation of Hercule Poirot’s Christmas set in 1939 France. The audience loved them so much that a TV series was made and other novels were adapted into episodes set in Northern France roughly between 1935 and 1939.
So here’s Inspecteur (equivalent of DI in Britain) Emile Lampion and his boss Commissaire (DCI) Jean Larosière. Larosière loves gourmet cooking and classical literature (he knows his Shakespeare and his Racine); he’s quite intelligent, knows it, and doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Fortunately, his DI Lampion is no fool - but he can be awkward, clumsy, is not as well-read as his superior officer and is less prone to “eureka!” moments. He’s also methodical (with a great interest in the then-budding scientific police), thorough, kind-hearted, and a rather level-headed young man. (He’s also gay, which was even less easy in that day and age than it can be now. But it’s one of his defining traits, not the main one.)
They have a rocky but heartfelt kind of father-son relationship and I love ‘em a lot :o)
So, I was in the car today and saw someone with the license plate “X0DUS3 5”, so I thought it was like Exodus 3:5 and I looked it up, and do you know what it said?
"Do not come any closer."
This is true art right here.

Coming out of your room at 3 am and seeing your parents
The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.
These are some fun fucking facts
