Very good movie with the original cast, not the remake! Cant go wrong with a cast like that! Family movie...no swearing, but it does show the murder reenactment at the end.

Many of the other reviewers criticize Albert Finney's performance as Poirot, but to my mind he comes much closer to Christie's creation than Peter Ustinov did. Finney captures the vanity and ego of the man in a more understated way, as well as physically looking like the Poirot I imagined reading the books as a teenager. There are many terrific performances in the film, from Wendy Hiller as a stone-faced Russian princess to Vanessa Redgrave who gives a rather joyful performance as an unflappable English secretary (the moment when she winks at Sean Connery before going in for questioning is one of the best moments in the film). There's a wildly successful attempt on the part of the art and set decorators, costume, makeup and hairdressers to recreate the opulence of a by-gone era. Richard Rodney Bennett's score is alternatively lush and eerie at exactly the right moments.

The only criticism I have of this film is that it feels like a series of shorts as Poirot interviews each of the suspects and there isn't much time given to the interactions of the passengers with each other. I could feel myself at some points ticking off who had had their ten minutes and who was still to come. Still, when the episodes star everyone from Lauren Bacall to Ingrid Bergman (in her Oscar-winning role) to John Gielgud, this is really a small complaint.

Sit back and enjoy a well-crafted piece of film making done with the kind of care that sadly seems to have gone out of fashion.

Thirty years ago in 1974, Sidney Lumet (who is known for directing "Network" in 1976, "Serpico" in 1973 and "Death Trap" in 1982) directed a murder-mystery film based upon the 1934 novel "Murder on the Orient Express" (a.k.a. "Murder in the Calais Coach"). The novel was written by the famous murder-mystery author Agatha Christie (1890-1976) and was the ninth book in the series that featured her famous fictional detective named Hercule Poirot. The Orient Express began service in 1883 as a passenger rail service between Paris and Venice. An additional southern route (known as the Simplon Orient Express) was started in 1919 that ran from Paris to Istanbul that also passed through Venice. It is upon the Simplon Orient Express that Agatha Christie placed the location for her novel.
The 1974 film adaptation included an all-star cast, including the famous actor Albert Finney who played Hercule Poirot, for which he received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. (Albert Finney has been nominated 4 times by the Academy for Best Actor and once for Best Supporing Actor, which was for his role as Ed Masry in the 2000 film "Erin Brockovich".) Poirot boards the Orient Express on his journey home after solving a murder case. On the train, in the sleeper cabin next to his is the millionaire businessman Mr. Ratchett (Richard Widmark), who is accompanied on the train by his secretary, Hector MacQueen (Anthony Perkins, 1932-1992), and his butler, Mr. Beddoes (Sir John Gielgud, 1904-2000). Other passengers on the train include the Countess Andrenyi (Jacqueline Bisset), Greta Ohlsson (Ingrid Bergman, 1915-1982), Mrs.

While the movie is a faithful adaptation of Agatha Christie's book, Albert Finney's portrayal of the quirky but brilliant Hercule Poirot is disappointing. Even those who are not familiar with David Suchet's interpretation will be disappointed if they have read many of the Poirot mysteries. Gone are most of Poirot's most obvious traits--his enormous vanity, his charm, his fastidiousness. If Albert Finney was familiar with Agatha Christie's character at all before the movie, it was only a very slight aquaintance.
The rest of the cast is impeccable--Sean Connery, Lauren Bacall, Ingred Bergman--the list goes on and on. While some parts of the story have been changed, they are only slight changes and the movie remains true to the spirit and story of the book.

Albert Finney's Poirot does not hold a candle to David Souchet's excellent Poirot as seen recently in the new 2010 version of 'Murder on the Orient Express' recently broadcasted in N. America on PBS' "Mystery Theatre". The cast are not much better. Sean Connery seems bored with it all. The dark foreboding end to the 2010 version, with Poirot in a terrible moral quandry, is much more in keeping with the dilemna created when those who have been terribly wronged take justice into their own hands. It is a good interpretation and much better than the typical 'American' ending presented in this version.

If you enjoy a good solid mystery this is for you. It keeps you guessing right till the end. I read the book first and the movie does not dissappoint. Enjoy!
