Almost everyone on the S.S. Karnak, cruising the Nile, has a reason to want heiress Linnet Ridgeway (Lois Chiles) dead. Her jewels are coveted by elderly Mrs. Van Schuyler (Bette Davis), her maid is upset because Linnet won’t give her a promised dowry, writer Salome Otterbourne (Dame Angela Lansbury) is facing a libel suit brought by Linnet, Salome’s daughter Rosalie Otterbourne (Olivia Hussey) wants to protect her mother, American Andrew Pennington (George Kennedy) has been embezzling from the Ridgeway family, and former friend Jacqueline De Bellefort (Mia Farrow) is upset that Linnet stole her fiancé, Simon Doyle (Simon MacCorkindale), away from her. Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot (Sir Peter Ustinov) must unravel the mystery when Linnet (and some of the others) turn up dead.
