Synopsis:
This 1974 production of Agatha Christie's 1934 classic is a judicious mixture of mystery, murder and nostalgia. Which member of the all-star cast, on board the luxurious train, perforated the no-good American tycoon with a dagger twelve times? Was it Ingrid Bergman's shy Swedish missionary; or Vanessa Redgrave's English rose; Sean Connery as an Indian Army Colonel; Michael York or Jacqueline Bisset; perhaps Lauren Bacall; Anthony Perkins or John Gielgud as the victim's impassive butler. Finney spreads unease among them with subdued wit and finesse.

Oh dear oh dear - Murder on the Orient Express review by MH

Spoiler Alert

I assume the director was aiming for comedy. Sadly he missed. A great cast wasted on a stupid plot and sub-standard direction. But I have always thought Agatha Christie is a vastly over-rated writer, so perhaps it was ultimately her fault. At least Albert Finney was an improvement on the dire David Suchet.
