Directed by
Sidney Lumet

This top-notch adaptation of Agatha Christie's novel is set in 1934, aboard the Orient Express. A financier travelling from Istanbul to Paris is found dead, stabbed a dozen times, and it is up to celebrated Belgian detective Hercule Poirot - played by Albert Finney - to solve the crime. He painstakingly interviews those in the same railway car and through an elaborate re-creation aims to find out just who carried out the deed.

The all-star cast includes Lauren Bacall (pictured), Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery, John Gielgud and Anthony Perkins.

Highly recommended.
