Murder on the Orient Express
Drama • PG • 1974 • 2 hr 8 min
Excellent production. All star cast. Terrific art production. Sidney Lumet shows he can create movie magic without NYC cop theme.
Fine and twisted.It’s one of those stories that you enjoy better if you haven’t read the book
One of my all time favorites with possibly the greatest ensemble cast of all time. Finney, Bacall, Bergman, Connery. Everyone brought it.
This is a goodie - perhaps Agatha Christie's best mystery adapted to the screen. Stellar performances and direction.
One of the best classic murder mysteries!
Such an amazing cast. The book is equally good.
Great on the condition that you don't know the big twist.
When I was little, it was the scariest movie in the world! It’s still pretty good, but new watchers may prefer the new version.
Best thing about this was the cast ostensibly! A familiar trait of many of the original Christie blockbusters! Quite likeable thriller neway
I remembered this movies ending while in the middle of watching the remake... but oh well, still glad I watched it.
