Facts about

Miss Marple's audition piece for the Cosgood Players is a dramatic rendering of "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" by Robert W. Service.
The music playing at the opening of the hospital scene is a reference to the television show Dr. Kildare, down to the shot of the doors to the ward. The score alludes to the theme music from the series, "Three Stars Will Shine Tonight", composed by Jerry Goldsmith.
This was the penultimate production in the series of four films with Margaret Rutherford as Miss Jane Marple. The last is Murder Ahoy (made the same year as Murder Most Foul), in which Inspector Craddock has been promoted to the rank Chief Inspector. After the series concluded Rutherford and her husband Stringer Davis reprised their roles of Miss Marple and Mr Stringer only once more, for a brief cameo appearance in The Alphabet Murders.
