Mass fixing indentation. Also, the wiki is not about you. Never use "this troper" when writing for the wiki. Ever. Oh, and by the way, the murderer is (BANG!) Aaargh!...
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Mr. Paravicini sometimes gets this in various productions. Most portray him as a stereotypical Italian who talks a like a this and such. Others however portray him more like an Italian mobster giving him an edge of sorts. * AdaptationDisplacement: To some degree, anyhow. Think about it: how often do you hear anyone refer to the original short story or radio play ''Three Blind Mice'' instead of the play? ** Although that's partially due to publishing of the short story being banned in its home country until the show stops running. It was, however, released in the United States. *** A collection of Christie plays has been released in the US, including ''The Mousetrap''. This troper doesn't know if it's been released in the UK as well, but assumes not. * CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: The ending. [[DoNotSpoilThisEnding We won't say why.]]

** Not entirely; they give it all away at ThatOtherWiki, those killjoys. *** They do at least acknowledge it just before they do so. ** Arguably subverted, actually. Almost everyone follows the rule not to spoil the ending. But the fact that it's been running for 60 years now tends to make that fact moot.

* {{Narm}} : Let's just say some think the endings a bit too sappy. * NightmareFuel: Oh very much so and not just at the end. Think about it, you're trapped in a little bed and breakfast inn by a snow storm with people you don't know...and one of them is the killer.
