Classic Movie: MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS

This season's Classic Movie series, "Around the World with Classic Movies," features six films from the 1930s to the 1970s, set in other lands.  The film chosen for March is MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS.

 This 1974 version, based on the book by Agatha Christie, was said to be “the greatest cast of suspicious characters ever involved in murder.” The all-star cast includes Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman (who won the 1975 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress), Vanessa Redgrave Martin Balsam, Sean Connery, Anthony Perkins, Richard Widmark and Michael York.

In December 1935, the Orient Express from Istanbul is full, unusual for this time of the year. But famed and fastidious Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, needs to get back to London immediately. Fortunately, his friend, railway executive Signor Bianchi, is able to secure last minute passage. Some of the first class passengers seem concerned about Poirot's presence on the train. At least one of them has reason to be concerned, as later, another first class passenger, who earlier in the trip asked Poirot to provide protection for him, is found murdered in his stateroom by multiple stabbings. At the time the victim is found, the train is unexpectedly stopped and delayed due to snow in remote Yugoslavia, which may be problematic for the murderer in getting away now that Poirot is on the case.

The film is rated PG and runs for 127 minutes.
