Australian One Sheet Poster.Death on the Nile is a 1978 British mystery film based on Agatha Christie's 1937 novel of the same name, directed by John Guillermin (The Towering Inferno) and adapted by Anthony Shaffer.

The film is a follow-up to the 1974 film Murder on the Orient Express. It takes place in Egypt in 1937, mostly on a period paddle steamer on the Nile. Various famous Ancient Egyptian sights are featured in the film, such as the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx, and temples at Abu Simbel and Karnak, sometimes out of sequence (the boat trip scenes start at Aswan, move downstream to Karnak, and then shift upstream to Abu Simbel). Death on the Nile won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design at the 51st Academy Awards.
