Miss Bowers, Death on the Nile

In the 1978 film, Dame Maggie Smith played the tall, chain -smoking and rather masculine figure of ‘Miss Bowers’.  Here she is wearing a rather heavy, for Egypt, tweed tartan skirt together with a matching grey jacket and waistcoat and a pair of very sensible brown and white walking shoes.

"Death on the Nile"

While researching more ideas for K&C’s mini ‘Ancient Egyptian’ series that updates the range to the discovery of the boy King Tutankhamun’s burial site in 1922, I remembered the 1978 British murder mystery film “Death On The Nile”.  Based on Agatha Christie’s 1937 novel of the same name, the film features the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot played by Peter Ustinov plus an all-star supporting cast of Maggie Smith, Bette Davis, and David Niven among others.

Although the original book and film takes place in 1937, it featured many famous Ancient Egyptian sites with the actors and actresses wearing very similar styles and fashions to those characters K&C has already presented in ‘The Discovery of Tutankhamun’ mini range.

Many still photographs from the 1978 movie were used as style references for these three new figures.

Due to be released in AUGUST 2023.
