The Man in the Brown Suit (1989)

The Man in the Brown Suit is a 1989 American adaptation of Agatha Christie's novel of the same name starring Rue McClanahan, Tony Randall, Edward Woodward, Stephanie Zimbalist and Ken Howard. The TV movie budget forced the setting to be changed to modern day, with many of the characters like Colonel Race/Gordon Race now American rather than British.

This was the final film in a series of eight Agatha Christie mysteries produced by Warner Brothers as TV movies in the 1980s, all set in the present. The series resulted in three Poirot mysteries (Thirteen at Dinner, Dead Man's Folly, Murder in Three Acts), two Miss Marple mysteries (A Caribbean Mystery, Murder with Mirrors), and three one-offs (Sparkling Cyanide, Murder is Easy, and this film.)
