4 out of 10 A classic, all star cast
Colm from Dublin, 23 May 2008
I really enjoyed this, a great piece of film nostalgia, but really well done to boot. Be ware that the production values are very different from today's but it doesn't take long to forget that and get absorbed. It really is an all star cast, from Sean Connery, Michael York, Vanessa Redgrave to Lauren Becall and John Gielgud, but the outstanding performance is from Albert Finney as Poirot. It's worth renting for that alone. It's a cliche but they don't make em like this anymore.

What's it about....
The first of several lavish Christie adaptations from producers John Brabourne and Richard Goodwin, introducing Albert Finney as the first screen Hercule Poirot. 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, onboard 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...
